Take a taxi to Burj Al Sahwa station. Taxis right in front of the airport will take you there for 7 OMR (5 min ride). The airport taxis are blue and you have to pay for them up-front at a little stall reading “airport taxi” in front of the arrival hall.

For all other taxis, which are recognizable by their orange/white color: Taxis in Oman are not metered, so you need to negotiate a fare prior to boarding a taxi! When walking up to the main street you can catch a taxi or shared bus and bargain a much cheaper fare.
