We are pleased because we have achieved many milestones, survived, and overcome many adversities with grace and success. Starting very small, it’s safe to say we have become a benchmark in the industry, and we couldn’t have achieved it without the support of our customers and the die-hard supporters of our vision.
SalamAir family needs a special mention as we celebrate our anniversary, as their resilience and can-do attitude contributed to us celebrating yet another year”.
