Travelling abroad? Find out about the new baggage rules at Muscat International Airport

If your baggage is irregularly shaped, then you will be fined at the Muscat International Airport, starting from August 1. According to a notice issued by the Oman Airports, baggage without a flat surface, blankets and rope wrapped packages are subjected to this charge.

“We had introduced this rule last year but it is now made mandatory. Passengers can still take their baggage provided they pay an extra fee,” said the statement.

Meanwhile, passengers are advised to carry two pieces of baggage while travelling abroad. “Each bag must not exceed 32kg,” the statement added.
