muscat airport guide

In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our Muscat Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!

The only place that was comfortable was Costa Coffee which had some softer chairs and two sofas - my tip would be to get there fast and bag a sofa. We weren't quick enough the first time round! - Gillycat

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Muscat International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A single-terminal international airport. The terminal building is soon to be replaced by a new one, currently under construction and due to be completed by the end of 2016.
  • Facilities and seating are minimal, both airside and landside. Hopefully this will change when the new terminal opens.
  • Flight delays and lost luggage are common at this airport.
  • Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • There are approx. 20 comfortable leather chairs than lean back at Costa Coffee.
