The signing ceremony, held at the Swissotel Bosphorus, gathered business partners, industry stakeholders, and media representatives.

Under the terms of the agreement, Wtatil becomes the sole authorized representative of Salam Air in Türkiye, with both entities setting ambitious goals for a tenfold expansion within the country.

They have set a target for tenfold growth in terms of revenue

Setting their sights on substantial growth in terms of revenue, both parties have announced a mutual agreement to target a tenfold increase in passenger numbers and revenue for Salam Air by 2024.

Renowned for its modern and youthful fleet comprising 14 aircraft, including 6 Airbus A320neo, 7 Airbus A321neo, and 1 Airbus A321, Salam Air primarily serves diverse destinations in the Middle East and Asia. Since its inaugural flight to Türkiye in July 2019, Salam Air has been offering affordable travel options to popular destinations such as Istanbul, Trabzon, Bangkok, Phuket, and Colombo, among others, as well as alternative flight options to destinations in India, Asia, Germany, and Albania.
