List of Airports in Oman

Oman like its sister nations in the Middle East is trending as an exquisite tourist destination. Oman gives you a unique tour experience as it allows you to fade in nature with activities like desert safaris, kitesurfing, cave exploration or simply enjoying the sea breeze on pristine beaches. Shopping in Omani souqs or markets selling gold, silver and textiles is like travelling back in time. All these make Oman a popular choice among tourists. Hence the Sultanate of Oman offers modern airports to aid tourists.

Here are 5 of the best airports in Oman:
