Muscat International Airport (formerly Seeb Airport) (IATA: MCT, ICAO: OOMS) is the main airport in Muscat, Oman. It is the hub for the national carrier Oman Air. The distance from Old Muscat is 30 km and it is 15 km from the main residential localities. At the moment the airport is being expanded and modernized. The airport will be upgraded to 12 million-passenger capacity during the initial stage and subsequently to 48 million. The initial stage is scheduled for completion in 2011. The airport was renamed on 11 February 2008 from the previous name, Seeb, to Muscat International Airport.


The expansion project for the airport will include a new modern terminal and a new runway that can handle the new Airbus A380. It will include a new control tower with a height of 101 meters, 32 aerobridges, a new cargo termial to handle 200,000 tons of cargo annually, and extra 6,000 car spaces. The new terminal will be built between the two parallel runways . The new terminal building will have a net floor area of 290,000 sqm. Once the construction of the new runway is completed, upgrade work will progress on the existing one, in order to allow it to handle the larger aircraft.

The first phase of the airport expansion, the new terminal building, is expected to be completed by 2014, which will have a capacity to handle 12 million passengers a year. The final phase, which will expand the airport to handle 48 million passengers a year, is expected to be completed by 2050.

Several site preparatory steps are underway. Work to protect the airport and the runways from water damage that occurs during the very rare rains is the first phase. The grounds are raised by three meters for this purpose, by driving 10-12 million cubic meters of desert sand and crushed rock into the site.

On 8 August 2008, Cowi Group has announced that the designing phase of the airport has reached a major milestone which allows the construction of the new terminal to start in early 2009
