Rotana Jet to fly Salalah from Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, August 12, 2013
Rotana Jet today announced 23 return flights during August and September between Abu Dhabi’s Al Bateen Airport and Salalah in Oman.
Following the introduction of flights between Dubai and Sir Bani Yas Island and Abu Dhabi Al Bateen, the addition of Salalah demonstrates the airline’s commitment to expand to diverse destinations worldwide that are underserved, yet increasingly popular with holidaymakers and business travellers alike, a statement said.
The charter flights are in agreement with tour operators promoting the destination, it said.
The Salalah Tourism Festival (also known as the Khareef Festival), which began with the Eid festivities this year, will continue until late September. During this period, nature becomes more beautiful as light rains fall on mountains and green plains flourish.
For travelers from Abu Dhabi, flights will operate between Al Bateen Airport and Salalah on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The Abu Dhabi – Salalah flights will depart Abu Dhabi Al Bateen Airport at 1530 hrs and arrive in Salalah International Airport at 1730 hrs. The return flights will depart Salalah International Airport on the same days at 1815 hrs and arrive in Abu Dhabi Al Bateen Airport at 1955 hrs.
“As a customer-driven airline, Rotana Jet is glad to facilitate this much needed connectivity between Abu Dhabi Al Bateen Airport and Salalah. Non-stop flights to Salalah offers passengers travelling from UAE with yet another unique holiday option to experience and we believe this will create a wide range of new options for the tourism and business sectors. Rotana Jet is gearing up for an year of expansion with new routes steadily opening up, keeping in line with our commitment to provide passengers with choice and great value,” said Rajendran Vellapalath, Rotana Jet’s commercial and planning director.
Passengers to Salalah will travel on a 50-seat Embraer Jet aircraft.
