Cheap Flights from Muscat

Kayak kindly provide RSS feeds which show the lowest fares found by users during the past two days. They are economy class fares (displayed here in Omani Rials), including taxes, that were actually available on the dates mentioned, not merely ‘hypothetical’ fares that ‘might’ be available (but in reality are almost impossible to find)! Having said that, bear in mind that the fares may no longer be available by the time you try to find them. Nevertheless, they should give a pretty good indication of what the current lower end of the market fares are.

Comparison: ITA Matrix vs Momondo vs Opodo & more

Lets put some of the airfare search engines to the test. I’ll use 3 ‘test’ routes for this comparison: The first a straight-forward point-to-point economy class fare search on a route with direct flights. The second will be a more complicated routing with several connections required, also in economy class. The third will be a business class fare search which I’ll publish as a separate post.

I will include the result from ITA Marix with each example, even though tickets cannot be booked through their site, as a reference to see how close we come to matching their lowest fare. (All fares will be converted to US$ irrespective of the currency used by the supplier.)

Route 1: Muscat, Oman (MCT) to London, England (LON). Departing 7 October 2009 and returning 14 October 2009.

Website ITA Matrix Bestflights Jetabroad Mobis- simo Momondo Openjet Opodo
Fare (US$)
$453*
$476 $504 $737** $468 $464 $498
Rank NR 3 5 6 2 1 4

*Qatar Airways with return flight from Gatwick but arrival at Heathrow.

** All sites returned Qatar Airways as being the cheapest, except Mobissimo which only returned a fare from British Airways and nothing else.

Note:- If booked via the Qatar Airways website, this ticket would cost US$453.

Route 2: Muscat, Oman (MCT) to Las Vegas, USA (LAS). Departing 22 October 2009, return 31 October.

Website ITA Matrix Bestflights Jetabroad Mobis- simo Momondo Openjet Opodo
Fare (US$) $1,230 $1,012 $1,370 -* $1,114 $1,476 $1,346
Airlines Used QR/AA/UA UA/KU/LX NW/EK - UA/EK BA/US AA
Rank NR 1 4 - 2 5 3

* no results returned

Conclusion

Based solely on these two examples, the average rankings in terms of lowest fares found are:

1) Bestflights and Momondo with an average score of 2

2) Openjet with an average score of 3

3) Opodo with an average score of 3.5

4) Jetabroad with an average score of 4.5

So there you have it. It’s worth noting that in the second test, Bestflights and Momondo returned an even lower fare than that found by ITA Matrix.
