Salam Air awards engine maintenance agreement to CFM International

Salam Air and CFM International have signed an engine maintenance agreement.

The low cost carrier, the first in the Sultanate of Oman, operates a fleet of seven CFM LEAP-1A-powered Airbus A320neo family aircraft.

The agreement also includes the acquisition of spare engines.

“We have been with Salam Air since the beginning and it has been a privilege to watch them grow so quickly and so successfully,” said CFM International’s vice president of sales and marketing Philippe Couteaux.

“We appreciate the continued trust they have placed in people and our products and look forward to the continued expansion of our relationship in the future.”

Salam Air said it plans to introduce an additional A321eno into its fleet in 2022.

Commenting on the partnership, Salam Air’s CEO Captain Mohamed Ahmed said: “With the expansion plans we have for the airline and the current upward trend we see in air travel; CFM is a reliable partner to support our engine requirements.”

Salam Air began scheduled domestic operations in January 2017. It currently serves 32 destinations across the Middle East, Africa, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Turkey.
