Oman Air & Muscat Airport

April, 2016

This year, 2016 we flew with Oman Air for our long haul vacation. Firstly we covered Italy, then to London & lastly Oman. Our flight from Kuala Lumpur is on a A330 to Milan with a two hours transit at Muscat airport. The economy class has a 3-4-3 seating arrangement with a 2-3-2 arrangement for the last 4 rows. The seat has generous leg room with a seat pitch of at least 32″.

Flight safety instructions are through cartoonised video. Quite interesting.

After about 7 hours flight from Kuala Lumpur, we landed at Muscat International airport for a change of plane onwards to Milan with a 2 hours transit. The current airport is not as modern or big as compared to KLIA, what not if compared to Dubai as it does not even have an aero bridge. It is understood that a new terminal is under construction that will probably rival DXB, AUH or DOH in future. A note to mention is that Muscat airport runway, tarmac and apron are super smooth, we hardly experienced bumps like other airports.

The Muscat International airport is relative small but they still have shops and eatery outlets to cater for the passengers. From our observation, the majority of Oman Air passengers are on transit while passengers actually stopping at Oman are only a handful.
