Swissport handles first Omani freighter


Swissport handled the inaugural flight of Salam Air Cargo at Muscat International Airport on 27 October, the first all-cargo flight by an Omani airline. Salam Air expects to operate several cargo flights per week from Muscat to destinations such as Dhaka, Chittagong, Mumbai, Istanbul and Khartoum. Its Airbus A321 passenger to freighter converted aircraft will provide a payload of up to 27 tons. It is the first low-cost airline based in Oman, and has been offering passenger travel to many destinations across the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe since 2017.

Swissport has been present in Oman since 2017 and operates at Muscat International Airport and at Mukhaizna Airport, providing passenger services and ramp handling at both airports.
