Flights from Muscat
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.

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.
