Flying out of Muscat, Oman - anyone any experience

How easy is it to get a flight out of Oman (to India, Malaysia, Australia etc) with a bike? Are there airlines that will handle that sort of cargo?

flying from dubai is probably easier and cheaper, it's a bigger hubb. and only a one days drive away.

Paul, did you make it across the water yet? I am interested in anything you find out about shipping, as my visa for IRan is not 100% and shipping from Muscat or Dubai needs to be Plan B for me as well.
Cheers<
Rene

Hey Rene! How are you mate? So you made up the eastcoast of Africa? We met in Livingstone in may! It´s Lars, the swedish cyclist! :-)

I was 5 month in south america, but not so much peddaling over there... (malaria?)

But in the mid jan I will fly in to sanaa and cycle up to Turkey...

Did you liked Yemen&Oman? I really look forward to it...

I haven´t done so mush research yet, but I hope there is a ferry from Qatar to Iran so I can go Yemen-Oman-UAE-Saudi-Qatar-Iran..

I wish you well Rene, and I want a rematch.. (pool)

/Lars

Hi Lars, Good to hear from you. I am in Ethiopa now, heading in a few weeks to Yemen. So we may be able to have that rematch in San'a.

I will drop you a line as I get closer!
Cheers,
Rene

Hi Rene

No research yet - it was Xmas and Eid here in Dubai!

But so far I have learnt the Jebel Ali port in South Dubai handles a lot of furniture removal to and from India so should be able to handle a bike (I might pretend it is a coffee table!)

aim to find out more in next week or so

paul
