flydubai began flights to Salalah, in the Sultanate of Oman, earlier bringing its operational network to 60 destinations.

The inaugural flight delegation to Oman was led by flydubai’s chief commercial officer, Hamad Obaidalla, who said: “With Oman just next door to the UAE, there is a long history of tourism and trade between our countries.
“Through this new service we hope to further enhance these ties and make it easier and more convenient to travel between Dubai and Salalah.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in enabling us to fly to Salalah for the support and encouragement they have given flydubai.”
Meanwhile, earlier today, Obaidalla inaugurated the new flydubai Travel Shop in Salalah, making it even easier for passengers to book their travel to Dubai.
