Arriving in Melbourne
Qatar Airways flights from Melbourne depart from Terminal 2, which handles all outbound international flights. An expansion scheme was completed in 2012, providing greater space for retail outlets and passenger lounges.
Because Qatar Airways uses the new A380 Airbus, most departures will be from Gate 9 and11.
Facilities and amenities
The Air Lounge in Terminal 2 offers passengers a relaxing location to grab a quick bite before boarding their Qatar Airways flight from Melbourne.
A number of Australian produce outlets are also located in Terminal 2, as well as luxury accessories retailers and shops selling everything from surfing paraphernalia to perfumes and watches. There is also a large number of food options, from small cafés to excellent restaurants serving international cuisine.
Larnaca has been around for a long time. There is evidence of human habitation going back over 6,000 years, making it one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.
Close to some sites of international importance, it is also a thriving tourist hot-spot and one of the most popular destinations on Cyprus’ coast.
Book a flight to Larnaca with Qatar Airways and whether you’re travelling to this glorious Mediterranean island for business or pleasure, you’ll discover a welcome that is as warm as the weather.
Outdoor lovers have plenty to choose from, ranging from water sports and hiking to skiing during the winter, while Larnaca’s position as the capital of the country makes it a major destination for business travellers.
One of the most important holy sites in the country is The Hala Sultan Tekke mosque, on the side of the Salt Lake.
The tomb of Umm Haram, the foster mother of Mohammed, is said to be located here, making it a place of pilgrimage for many.
It is also a tranquil and beautiful spot that takes you well away from the crowded streets of the city.
The Salt Lake itself is a natural wonder, and during the winter months flocks of flamingos congregate here, making it a colourful natural spectacle that is well worth travelling out of town to see.
Larnaca’s coast is a diver’s paradise, and with sunken temples and coral reefs it offers a glimpse into an underwater world that’s very different from that you’ll find back on dry land.
One of the city’s ancient locations is the Church of St. Lazarus, built in the 9th century and a magnificent example of early church architecture.
Dotted around the city you’ll also find Roman sites and Greek temples that are well worth visiting.
