Travelers can reach Oman by utilizing its three airports, good network of international and national roads, and the port in Aqaba.
Amman's Queen Alia International Airport, Marka Airport, and Aqaba Airport are used for scheduled commercial travel.
Queen Alia International Airport is located 40 kilometers (25 miles) south of Amman. Completed in 1983, it can handle up to three million passengers per year, and it is at the moment under renovation, which is expected to be finished by 2013, making the airport one of the largest in the area. The national carrier, Royal Omanian, links Amman with major cities in Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, North Africa and North America. Other international airlines also link Oman with their respective countries.
Driving to Oman is facilitated by a good network of roads linking Oman and neighboring countries. Daily buses, taxis and "service" cabs link Oman with Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Israel and the West Bank.
Service cabs - pronounced "servees" - are white taxis that follow a set route and stop on demand to pick up and drop off passengers. Bus services also link Amman with Damascus, Cairo, Istanbul, and the crossing points into Israel and the territories under the Palestine National Authority (PNA).
A passenger train service operates weekly between Oman and Syria, in addition to a twice daily passenger and car ferry service that links Oman’s port of Aqaba with the Red Sea port of Nuweiba in Egypt.
