Statement by SalamAir CEO 

SalamAir flight from Muscat to Jeddah on 11 May 2019 has returned to Muscat as it was not permitted to enter the airspace of Saudi Arabia due to missing some information of passengers’ historical data from previous flights that is normally transmitted automatically between the airline’s system and the authorities’ system. After addressing this with the Saudi authorities, the flight flew from Muscat to Jeddah on 12 May 2019 as per its regular schedule. All SalamAir flights are now cleared to fly to their Saudi destinations according to their scheduled times.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the authorities in both the Sultanate of Oman and the kingdom of Saudi Arabia for their valuable contributions to resolve this matter. SalamAir is committed to comply with the all regulations abiding by the highest standards of aviation practices.
