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.
Muscat International Airport provides two options for travelers who want to grab a bite to eat before a flight.
