Reliable and Personalised Muscat Airport Transfer

Oman International Airport is the main airport serving the country and receives millions of travellers from all around the world. As an international hub offering intercontinental services to Asia, Africa and Europe all year long, expect long queues everywhere, including at the taxi ranks. If that doesn’t sound like the ideal way to start your trip, you can pre-book your Muscat airport transfer with Welcome Pickups and upgrade your travel experience from the get-go.

With an easy, straightforward booking process, you’ll only need a couple of minutes to plan your airport transfer. Payment takes place in advance, saving you the trouble of worrying about currency exchange as soon as you land, and ensuring a competitive, fixed fare. You’ll notice that you’ll be asked to fill in your flight number; that’s to ensure that your transfer will be operated no matter what. Your driver will monitor your arrival and adjust the pickup time accordingly in case there’s an unexpected delay.

Once you land, you’ll be greeted warmly by a professional, English-speaking, trained driver, who will be happy to help you with your luggage and take you to your accommodation in your private vehicle. Even though it’s only a short ride to Muscat city centre, you can use this time to ask your driver for recommendations on places to eat or must-see attractions that only a local would know. To enjoy the same level of service and peace of mind on the way back to the airport, don’t forget to ask your driver to help you book a return Welcome Pickups transfer before you reach your destination!

What our customers say about Welcome

"Anabelia, our tour guide was wonderful. She guided us through history and food and made great suggestions and enabled us to understand Greek culture and the food. I would highly recommend this tour.”

Getting to Muscat City Centre with your Muscat Airport Taxi

Muscat International Airport is located only 10 kilometres west of Muscat city centre. Getting there by taxi takes about 9 minutes in light traffic and you can easily track the route on your mobile. Once you leave the parking area, your driver will head south for about 3.5 kilometres, then keep right, and make a slight left. They’ll keep following the road for about 3 kilometres until you merge onto Route 1 (Sultan Qaboos St). The rest of the route depends on the exact location of your accommodation.

Why Choose a Welcome Muscat Airport Taxi

Booking a Welcome Pickups Muscat airport transfer is a sure way to enjoy smooth and stress-free transportation to your accommodation. Instead of waiting in the heat with dozens of other travellers for a taxi, worrying about the currency or checking bus timetables, you’ll have a professional, English-speaking driver wait for you upon arrival. Welcome’s flexible cancellation policy also allows you to plan ahead, taking into consideration that your travel plans might change. Flexibility is important after you land as well since passport control and baggage claim can take longer during the high season. That’s why Welcome offers 60 minutes of complimentary waiting time after the scheduled pickup time, allowing you to go at your own pace. All you need to do is look for the driver holding a sign with your name on it; after that, you can simply relax and enjoy the ride to your accommodation!
