The length of your flight will depend on several factors, including your city of departure as well as the number and length of any stopovers you make. If you’re flying out of the west coast, your flight time is more likely to be on the longer end of the spectrum, since flights to Muscat take a route through Europe to south Asia. Flights departing from the east coast are likely to be shorter and have less stopovers due to distance.

If you can book a flight with one of these airlines, you’re more likely to cut back on the number of stopovers you make for a shorter flight time. When you do experience stopoves, you can expect these to occur in cities like Frankfurt, Abu Dhabi, and Doha, depending on your airline.

Best Time to Fly to Muscat

The most temperate time to visit Muscat is actually during the winter. Between the months of October and March, the temperatures range between 59 and 86 degrees F, enabling you to enjoy some heat without being stifled so that you can explore the city and the beach to the full. In the summer months, temperatures reach around 113 degrees, which can make sightseeing more difficult. Travel during the more popular winter season is often more expensive, though many people think it is worth it, and it is still possible to get cheap deals. But if you like the heat at its hottest, July and August are the best months to go – just make sure to protect yourself well against the sun rays. To see the city at its best, why not visit during one of the many festivals that occur there? For example, the Muscat Festival happens every year, usually in February, and lasts a whole month showcasing arts, music, and other cultural delights.
