Perth Airport, Australia’s fourth busiest airport, serves the west of the continent and links passengers to destinations all over the world.
Qatar Airways flights from Perth regularly travel to Doha, making this a convenient departure point for both business and leisure travellers.
The typically laid-back Australian nature makes this a very friendly airport too, with helpful staff available throughout.
Parking and transportation
Perth Airport is very business-focused, providing plenty of parking and easy transportation to, and from, the city of Perth for business users.
Long-term parking is just 10 minutes away from the International Terminal 1, and a shuttle bus runs every few minutes from the parking area to the terminal. Both short and long-term parking areas are patrolled by 24-hour security.
The Perth Airport Connect shuttle bus runs from East Perth train station, and other locations in the city, to Terminal 3. International travellers can then connect with a shuttle bus service to take them to Terminal 1. Covered taxi ranks are located outside the main entrance to the terminal.
Arriving in Perth
Qatar Airways flights from Perth leave from International Terminal 1. The terminal has a number of lounges (some of which are airline-specific). Security is tight in Australia, so ensure that you do not have any banned items in your handbags and carry-on luggage to avoid delays.
Facilities and amenities
Wi-Fi is available throughout Terminal 1 (note that there may be some not-spots in areas close to ongoing construction). There are a number of retail outlets in Terminal 1, including duty-free shops and others that offer Australian goods – ideal for buying last-minute souvenirs.
A food court provides passengers with a selection of light bites, snacks, drinks and substantial meals with an international flavour.
Ezeiza is part of the huge city of Buenos Aires, and the location of the main airport serving the city. Book a flight to Ezeiza with Qatar Airways and you arrive in a vibrant, energetic and typically South American city with all the colour, noise and brashness that goes with this complex location.
Across Buenos Aires there are hundreds of sites to explore. The city is divided into Districts, so it’s best to plan your visit carefully so that you get the most from your trip. What you will find wherever you go in Buenos Aires and Ezeiza in particular is that the people are incredibly friendly and eager to show you the very best of their city.
Ezeiza is primarily the location of the airport and much of Buenos Aires industrial heartland, including newly developed areas for its growing high-tech industries. This attracts business travellers from all over the world, but if you want to see the old Buenos Aires then head into the city centre. The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes is the country’s most important arts museum and has works of international significance in its galleries.
The Manzana de las Luces is Buenos Aires’ key centre for culture and learning, and is home to workshops and the fascinating tunnels and underground network of workshops that have been in use since the 18th century.
You cannot experience Buenos Aires without the Tango – the legendary dance invented in the city. The best place to see an authentic Tango (rather than one that has been adapted for the tourists) is at a ‘Milonga’. Head to the Salon Canning, El Beso, Porteño y Bailarin and the Maldita Milonga for the best dancers, or pick up a guide map called the TangoMap Guide to find one in the area near you.
Two hugely popular sports in Argentina are football and polo. Their two football teams, the Boca Juniors and the River Plate, are followed with real passion, and tickets to their matches (known as the "Super Clasico") are the hottest tickets in town. For horse lovers the polo matches held at the polo fields in Las Canitas, especially the major December tournament, are a must see.
Flights to Buenos Aires with Qatar Airways land at Ministro Pistarini International Airport, also known as Ezeiza International Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Buenos Aires please check the visa and passport requirements.
Bucharest is Romania’s capital city and is rapidly becoming one of Europe’s tourist hot-spots. Filled with elegant buildings, cobbled squares and fabulous galleries, Bucharest captures the imagination at any time of year.
Business travellers will also discover it to be an important commercial hub, with a strong finance and investment sector as well as a growing high-tech marketplace filled with innovative and groundbreaking ideas.
Book a flight to Bucharest with Qatar Airways and you’ll step back into an age of elegance, where fine dining and refinement are the order of the day.
The people are warm and welcoming, giving visitors an experience to remember and making Bucharest one of the most popular destinations on the continent.
The heart of the city is the Old Centre or Lipscani, which stretches from the Dâmboviţa River to the south, Calea Victoriei to the west, Calea Moşilor to the east and Regina Elisabeta Boulevard to the north.
Here you’ll find everything from elegant 19th century façades and hotels where quiet opulence is the norm, to the ruins of the medieval court of the Wallachian princes. Narrow cobbled streets add real atmosphere to the city, and are a pleasure to wander down and explore.
In the centre of Bucharest, near Piaţa Unirii (Union Piazza), sits Parliament Palace – the largest parliament building in the world. Twelve storeys high and with 3100 rooms, the palace was recently built – and even has a network of underground tunnels below the surface.
Many of the rooms are lined by Romanian marble, and daily tours take visitors through the building (wear comfortable shoes as the tours can be quite lengthy).
Romania is proud of its traditional lifestyle and roots, and two excellent museums to explore this culture are the Village Museum and the Museum of the Romanian Peasant. The Village Museum is a vast, open-air complex of around 300 traditional buildings from every region of the country. The Museum of the Romanian Peasant celebrates the culture of the Romanian people through textiles, interiors and folk art.
