Muscat - Airports


Seeb International Airport (MCT): General Information

Seeb handles about 2.5 million passengers per year, and those entering Oman by air will land here. While it is a small airport, it has the basic amenities that weary travellers need. The one-runway airport is currently undergoing an extensive renovation, which will include the addition of another runway. Many of those entering through Seeb make connections to other areas in the Middle East and Asia, such as Abu Dhabi, Delhi, Cairo, Dahai, Kuwait, and Bangkok. Direct flights from many European countries are available, including Zurich, Istanbul, Frankfort, and London. Seeb handles domestic flights between Muscat and Salalah and Muscat and Khasab twice each week on Oman Air.

Visitors to Seeb International Airport will find a convenient 24 hour bank, currency exchange, and ATM, a good way to get some Rial Omani before going into the city; a duty free shop; a bookstore; and car rental agencies. There is a mall Arrivals Hall, which is where hotel representatives and group tour operators greet travellers. You can find food courts in the Arrivals and International Departures areas, a bar in Departures, a coffee shop, and both short-term and long-term parking facilities in front of the terminal. While not as lavish as many international airports, like LAX, Seeb provides comfort and refreshment to travellers.

Seeb International Airport (MCT): Getting into town

Taxis: Most visitors travelling from Seeb International Airport into the city of Muscat take taxis. These have a set-price for fares originating from the airport. Check on the current rate at the airport to ensure that your driver gives you the right fare.

Shared Minivans or Baisa: These are shared ride services that take groups from the airport to destinations within the city and even to some of the outlying suburbs.

Transfer Services: Many major hotels in the city offer their guests transfer services from the airport to their accommodations. Check with your hotel to see if they offer this service – it is extremely convenient and can save a great deal of hassle.

There are no public buses from the airport into Muscat, and there are no metros or rail services at all within the city. Taxis and baisa are the most common methods of getting into Muscat from Seeb.
