Oman Air offers an online check-in service to its passengers, aimed at minimising the time they need to spend in the airport. The earliest that passengers can check in online is 24 hours prior to scheduled flight departure. Online check-in closes an hour and a half ahead of a flight takeoff time. Passengers can also check in for Oman Air flights at the airport by going to the check-in counters there. Passengers choosing to check in this way should be aware that airport check-in counters close an 1 hour prior a flight's scheduled departure.

The Oman Air baggage allowance for hand luggage is dependent upon a passenger's fare type. The hand luggage allowance for Economy passengers is one item with a maximum weight of up to 7 kg. The allowance for Business class and First class passengers is 2 items of hand luggage with a combined weight of up to 14 kg. All hand luggage items must be no bigger than the combined length, width and height of 115 cm. Oman Air also recommends that all luggage is clearly labelled with the passenger's name and contact details to aid in recovery in case it goes missing.

Checked baggage allowance

Hold luggage that passengers are entitled to is also dependent on a their ticket class. Economy passengers have an allowance of 30 kg included with their Oman Air booking. The allowance for Business class passengers is 40 kg and 50 kg for First class passengers. It is up to the passenger how to split their allowance into different bags, but it is worth noting that Oman Air will not accept any item of baggage that weighs more than 32 kg. In addition to this weight limit, maximum dimensions (width plus height plus length) of a piece of luggage are set at 158 cm. Oman Air reviews its luggage allowances periodically and the current allowances are an increase in past limits.
