SalamAir, a low-cost carrier from Oman that launched operations in January 2017, has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo aircraft. The airline’s first A320neo, registered as A4O-OVD, was originally built for Frontier Airlines in 2017. However, the airplane was not taken over due to a hydraulic issue causing damage to the airframe but was now ready for delivery to SalamAir.

In total, the low-cost airline ordered six A320neo during the Farnborough Air Show 2018 and currently operates a fleet of three A320ceo aircraft as an all-Airbus operator.

SalamAir is based at Muscat International Airport and mainly owned by the Muscat National Development and Investment Company (ASAAS). The airline’s network consists of more than 15 destinations including Baku, Doha and Dubai.
