The Quebec capital of Montreal is served by the very large and modern Montreal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, formerly known as Montreal–Dorval International Airport.

Dammam is the third largest city in Saudi Arabia after Riyadh and Jeddah. This modern, forward-looking location also acknowledges its history and past with an eclectic mix of incredibly modern architecture that subtly incorporates more ancient design motifs and features. The result is a city that is stunningly beautiful and an oasis in the middle of a vast desert.
Book a flight to Dammam with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a fascinating city that is beginning to attract more leisure visitors every year. Although a relatively recent addition to the visitor’s map in Saudi Arabia, Dammam offers those who come to the city a warm and friendly welcome.
Dammam’s Corniche is perhaps one of the most popular meeting places for both tourists and locals. Looking out over the Persian Gulf and with a cooling breeze in the evening, this is a relaxing spot that has plenty of cafés and restaurants. A four-kilometre long track allows you to stretch your legs and take in the views.
An extension of the Corniche is Al Morjan Island, a small artificial island with a monument at the centre. But the most striking monument in the city has to be its enormous flagpole, a staggering 60m high and the tallest in the kingdom. It is a landmark that the locals are very proud of, and also serves as a good marker point if you get lost.
Flights to Dammam with Qatar Airways land at King Fahd 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.
