Taxis await flights outside Muscat airport's terminal. Agree the fare before you get in, though. Or pay at the taxi counter just outside the Arrivals hall, which has fixed rates to hotels and areas of Muscat. Many of Muscat's hotels lie on the coast between Muscat International Airport and downtown Muscat. For a cheaper option after your Muscat-bound flight, walk to the roundabout where minibuses stop on their way to central Muscat.
