What you need to know about Muscat AirportThe Muscat International Airport
, once known as Seeb International, is the largest airport in the Sultanate of Oman and is the main hub for the country's national carrier, Oman Air. If you are travelling to Muscat or another region in the country, you will most likely spend some time at this airport.
A major visitor and transfer hub
The airport’s terminals have the capacity to service 12 million passengers a year and further expansion will increase this number to over 48 million. The aim is to increase capacity so that it may become a major hub for transfers, tourism and traffic in the Middle East. The state-of-the-art technology being harnessed in the buildings enables the airport to service increasingly more passengers. There are 96 check in counters, 29 boarding bridges and 10 bus boarding lounges all employed to make your experience quick and stress free. The luggage systems can also process 5,500 pieces of luggage per hour, which means less waiting times.
The best of both worlds
The airport is 32 kilometres from the Old City and only 15 kilometres from the Park Inn by Radisson Muscat. When planning a trip to Muscat, place yourself close to the city and its attractions, while also being close to the airport. This way you can save travel time for the more important things.
The hotel is just a 15-minute drive from the terminals and at the same time provides easy access to the business district and the city's many cultural and commercial attractions. If you are travelling on business, you will find yourself minutes away from Shatti al Qurum, the main diplomatic and commercial centre, and close to Oman's government offices and business headquarters.
