Pulsating Parasailing

From the depths below to the heights above, parasailing lets you soar in the sky, all the while strapped in a harness connected to a large parachute while being pulled along by a speedboat. Sounds like your cup of tea? Then definitely give it a try!

The Best of the New Muscat International Airport – Beyond Simply an Airport

Muscat International Airport is located roughly 32 km away from the capital of Oman, Muscat and is spread over an area of 5,250 acres. The main reason for the remodelling of the airport is to focus and bring in more tourism into the country. The new airport features Omani themed architecture, state of the art technology and improved passenger service.

More Space

The highlight of the renovation is the fact that the airport now has plenty of space. Along with airside seating now bigger and better, the airport also boasts two five-level car parks. This decreases the hassle of getting out of the airport to reach any one of your hotels in Sohar on time!

Food and beverage area

For a final taste of authentic Omani cuisine after checking out of your hotel, such as Al Wadi Hotel, the new airport gives to you a 12,000 sqm food and beverage area for you to enjoy and stroll through. Muscat International airport offers to you plenty of options, whether you’re looking for coffee to keep you awake or a small bite to grab before your flight.

Higher capacity

The result of more space results in a much higher capacity, which is essential if Oman wants to reach its targets. Capacity doesn’t necessarily mean only in space, which is visible to us as passengers, the increased capacity also makes the internal processes happen smoothly.

Airbridges

Adding airbridges into the airport must be one of the best improvements made to the airport. Airbridges means decreasing the hassle of having to get into a bus from the terminal to the aircraft.
