Muscat flight FAQs

You can fly from London to Muscat International Airport via Doha with our oneworld® partner, Qatar Airways, in under 10 hours.

Autumn through to early spring is the most popular time to visit Muscat, so book flights mid-spring to summer if you want to pay less for your flights but enjoy beach weather and rose-blooming season.

With a little forward planning, you can make your trip to Muscat fit any budget. Eating at local cafes, small family-run restaurants and souks will save you money. If you visit during the autumn through to early spring, you can enjoy spending time outdoors exploring the limestone peaks of the Hajar Mountains and the cliff-top villages in Jebel Akhdar. There are lots of affordable options in the city too – admission to the Al Alam Palace is free, and the Royal Opera House is worth walking past to marvel at its impressive architecture.

Once you touch down in Muscat International Airport there are plenty of ways to get to the city centre. Catch a bus down the Sultan Qaboos Highway or hop in a taxi at the airport. Alternatively, you can explore the coastal city of Seeb, where the airport is located, and visit the Amouage Perfumery before heading downtown.

You can book a hand baggage-only ticket or make the most of our generous baggage allowance.

Oman’s capital offers an authentic taste of life in the Arabian Peninsula. This historic port town’s whitewashed, low-rise buildings are protected by law, and wandering through the Mutrah Souq while enjoying sweet cardamom tea is a very enjoyable experience. Take a moment to marvel at the Masjid Al Rasool Al Adham mosque, with its distinctive blue dome and minaret. If you want to venture out of the city, Oman is abundant with natural beauty, with rugged mountains, wind-blown deserts and immaculate coastlines waiting to be explored.
