Travel Information


Muscat International Airport

The Oman Convention & Exhibition Center is just 10 minutes away from the new Muscat International Airport. The total distance is 4 kilometers.



Taxis are available from Muscat International Airport to all destinations in Muscat or other cities, from the taxi area just outside the main terminal building.

The final price for your ride should be indicated by the taximeter. Therefore, we recommend that you make sure that driver starts the meter at the beginning of the trip, and it shows the minimum rate or initial service. It is possible to request your invoice once you arrive at your destination.

UBER & Careem

Uber and Careem are not available in Muscat, but you can download a number of apps which are similar. Mwasalat, which is government owned, is metered and works in a similar way. You’ll be connected with a driver and given an estimated arrival time, you can pay by cash or card and you’ll get a digital receipt at the end. OTaxi is also popular in Muscat, but you cannot use this at the airport, malls or major hotels as these areas are restricted to Mwasalat taxis only.
