Muscat Airport Information
Orbitz.com can help you find cheap flights from Muscat, the capital city of Oman. Muscat is situated on the Arabian Sea along the Gulf of Oman and has long been recognized for its strategic importance in the region as a trading port between the west and the east. Travelers flying out of Muscat use Muscat International Airport, formerly known as Seeb International Airport, a single-terminal air transit hub located at Muaskar Al Murtafa'a, approximately 19 miles from the central business district. More than 30 major airlines fly out of this airport, including Oman Air, Pakistan International Airlines, Air India, British Airways and Lufthansa.
Parking at Muscat International Airport
Muscat International Airport provides three parking lots for travelers driving to the airport. Car park No. 1, located in front of the terminal building, is only available for short-term parking for up to six hours. The cost to park in this lot is 0.500 bz. Car park No. 2, located east of the terminal building, allows long-term parking for up to 48 hours. The cost is RO 2/- per day. Car park No. 3, located west of the terminal building, allows long-term parking for periods longer than 24 hours. The cost to park in this lot is RO 2/- per day.
Muscat International Airport Ground Transportation
Muscat does not have a public rail system. It offers an extensive bus system, but the airport's official website recommends that passengers travel by taxi to access the airport. Taxis charge a negotiated flat fee. Travelers should be aware of the typical cost to travel to specific destinations in Muscat before hailing a taxi, because negotiating the fare with the driver before getting into the taxi can signal the traveler's unfamiliarity with the area. The cost of a taxi from downtown to the airport should be no more than approximately RO 10.000, depending on the origination point. Standard fares to many points in the Muscat area are published on the airport's website. Another option is to arrange for a car for hire. Many of the local hotels offer free shuttle services to the airport as well.
Restaurant Options at the Muscat International Airport
Muscat International Airport provides two options for travelers who want to grab a bite to eat before a flight. The Woodlands Restaurant & Bar is located on the first floor of the departures area and serves quality Indian cuisine. There is also a small coffee shop in the departures lounge where you can get coffee or breakfast. Easily find budget dining options in the downtown area and book cheap flights from Muscat by using Orbitz.com as your travel planner.
Flights from Sofia Airport
More than three million people use the Sofia Airport every year, because this airport is centrally located less than four miles from the downtown area. Searching for cheap flights to Sofia was once a problem, because many traditional airlines didn't fly to this airport. Orbitz.com can now get you a seat with any of the major airlines using this airport, including Aeroflot, Bulgaria Air, Niki, or Wizz Air.
Public Transportation and More
Getting from the airport to your hotel is just as important as flying into town. The city has several public transportation systems, including trolleys, buses, and trams. Each one makes multiple stops at the airport every day, which makes transport to your hotel easy. If you want to save money, you can purchase a bundle of tickets to use during your trip.
Harsh Winters and Mild Summers
During Sofia's harsh winters, temperatures drop to the low teens and up to 10 inches of snow covers the area. The summers are much milder, with temperatures remaining stable in the 60s and 70s, but on the warmer days, the temperatures can climb into the 80s.
