Oman Air: Start your journey comfortably from Muscat airport Terminal 1

Muscat airport Terminal 1, the home of Oman Air, opened its doors to the public on March 20th 2018. The new state-of-the-art terminal is an architectural wonder that reflects the beautiful landscape of Oman.

It is capable of handling 20 million passengers annually and it transformed Muscat into a major aviation hub in the Gulf region. Ideally located at the crossroads between East and West the airport offers numerous flight connections to Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle and Far East thanks to the strong presence of Oman Air.

The new terminal was designed explicitly taking into account the needs of transfer passengers. The facility includes

  • 45 departure gates all within short walking distances
  • 118 check-in counters, 82 immigration counters and 10 baggage reclaim belts so travellers do not have to queue at any time
  • an airside transit hotel with comfortable rooms and a SPA area with indoor swimming pool where travellers can relax between flights 

Premium check-in areas, luxurious Oman Air lounges and a variety of shopping and dining options within the terminal building add to an unparalleled travel experience at the airport that redefined travelling.
