Muscat



Travel time and best routes to this city from Europe or the US:

Travel is brutal, especially with stops in U.S. and then in Europe (London; Amsterdam; Frankfurt; or Zurich) usually long waits for connections; and finally a touch down passenger exchange - usually in Dubai (sometimes Doha). Most flights arrive to Muscat around 11 pm. We would recommend new direct flights from U.S. cities through Doha. Otherwise break up the flight if you can and spend a few days in Europe. It makes a huge difference to "cattle car" syndrome. - Mar 19, 2009
U.S. Government travelers are subject to the Fly America policy and currently travel via Europe (Frankfurt, Zurich, London, Amsterdam), resulting in a one-way flight time between 15 and 18 hours. Most flights stop in the UAE or elsewhere in the Gulf en route. Other travelers can take advantage of Emirates direct flights from Dubai. - Feb 18, 2008
