Muscat International Airport, formerly Seeb International, is the primary airport of Muscat, the capital city of the Sultanate of Oman.

Currently there is no “in terminal” or transit hotel at Muscat airport, however a transit hotel is included in the redevelopment of the airport and the new terminal and facilities are expected to be ready in March 2018. Until then it may be necessary to obtain an Oman visa prior to arrival.

  • The City Centre Hotel – Situated almost next door to the Muscat City Centre shopping mall, the hotel is about 4kms by road from the current passenger terminal
  • The Holiday Inn Seeb – Located near the western boundary of the airport, near Markaz al Bahja shopping mall and about a kilometre from Muscat City Centre

Taxis are available from the taxi booth immediately outside the arrivals area. Rates are fixed price, according to zones. For hotels near the airport the rate is approximately 7 Omani rials (approximately US$18).
