Flight to Oman could give you the most memorable flight experience in your lifetime. Unlike any other destinations, where all you can see from the sky is a plain city, loads of huge buildings, Oman is quite unique when it comes to scenery from above.
Minutes before landing at Muscat International Airport, beautiful Rocky Mountains and cliffs offered an eye capturing view from your window, plus a blue coastline on the other side. Most of the flights to Oman came from neighboring countries in Gulf region like
Dubai and Abu Dhabi, where large international airports serving flights to UK, US, Europe and many Asian countries are located. However, Oman air, Oman’s very own airlines has also direct flights from India and Pakistan.

People in Oman are mostly expats from countries like Pakistan, India Bangladesh, Egypt, Philippines and other countries. These expats are occupying the labor and skills sector, from domestic worker, construction, mechanics and technicians. However, Indian and Filipino professionals are also playing a great role in the countries ongoing development in the fields of business, education, medicine and engineering.
Based on my own experience, Omanis are the finest, friendliest and most hospitable Arabs in the whole Gulf. Influenced by their sincere observance of Islam faith, most locals are non-arrogant people and are very easy to deal with especially when you can talk to them with their own language.
My first flight to Oman happened in October 2009. That was when I was hired as a vocational training instructor in one of their 7 vocational schools situated away from the main city. At first glance to locals, I already noticed the difference when I arrived in the airport. Police officers who were assisting the arriving passengers are too kind, compared with airports from other Arabian countries.
Omanis are happy to show their fast pace of progress in their country. Holiday destinations are becoming too popular and tourism industry is also growing and becoming one of their main attractions. If you book a flight to Oman on holidays, you can have the best holidays spent in one the most fascinating places in this country.
