Kuwait Airways announces first flight to Salalah

Kuwait: Kuwait Airways announced Wednesday its first flight to Oman’s Salalah, with three scheduled flights per week on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. In a press release, Kuwait’s national carrier explained that electing the city of Salalah as a destination came after a meticulous study of the market and demand, explaining that this is in line with the airline’s strategy of expanding network and diversifying options.

Salalah is a destination with much to offer, including a moderate climate, tourist attractions, natural landscapes, and historical sites. Kuwait Airways was first established in 1953 as a private company and operated its first flight in March of 1954. The Kuwaiti government gained full ownership in 1962.
