The deal for the long-range A321LR planes, worth more than $250 million could be signed at the Dubai Airshow.


Omani budget carrier Salam Air is close to placing an order for two Airbus A321neo jets as it pushes ahead with expansion plans, reported Bloomberg.

Salam Air’s spokesman for said a plane purchase is under process but has not yet been finalised.

Mohamed Ahmed, Salam Air’s Chief Executive Officer, said that the Muscat-based carrier plans to increase its fleet of seven Airbus A320 jets to 11 planes and eventually reaching 20 over the next five years.

Ahmed said that buying more aircraft from the European manufacturer would make sense. The LR version of the A321neo would allow Salam Air to extend the spread of its operations as it targets a network of 60 destinations.
