Kuala Lumpur, also known affectionately as KM, is a city with a multicultural and very diverse character. Its colonial past left its legacy in the many shop-houses of the Old Quarter, whilst the more modern, thrusting side of Kuala Lumpur is personified by the Petronas Towers, at the heart of the city’s financial district. The Indian, Malay and Chinese communities have their own atmospheric quarters, and there are many 5-star hotels, gleaming new shopping malls and restaurants.
In an ancient country best known for its towering monuments, Cairo International Airport is an ultra-modern development that makes the most of 21st Century technology to provide passengers with a smooth, hassle-free experience.
The spacious terminals, plentiful facilities and amenities and a friendly staff more than willing to help make flying from Cairo with Qatar Airways a real pleasure. The airport is approximately 15km from the city and is easily accessible by taxi, car or public transport.
Transportation and parking
Numerous limousine services operate to and from the airport, providing comfortable, air-conditioned transport that’s available for pre-booking.
There are four types of ‘limousine’ service: Category A are luxury limousines, Category B are Micro Buses for up to seven passengers, Category C are midsized cars and new Category D are London Taxis. Ordinary taxis are available too – it is best to look for the newer white taxis rather than the older black and white operators.
There are a total of 3,612 parking spaces available, distributed around the airport. Qatar Airways passengers should head for the Departure Hall 1 parking area (930 spaces), the long-term car park (775 spaces) or the VIP parking area (400 spaces).
Arriving at Cairo International Airport
Passengers flying from Cairo with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 1 Hall 1. There are three lounges – the English, the Italian and the American lounge, as well as a VIP lounge.
Facilities and amenities
There is a wide range of facilities available throughout the airport and in particular in Terminal 1. Here you’ll find a selection of duty-free outlets as well as high-end exclusive shops selling perfume, jewellery, fine leather goods (something that Egypt is renowned for) and travel accessories.
There are a number of cafés and restaurants on site, including several exclusive restaurants in the lounge areas. Other facilities include banking, prayer rooms for devotions, mother and baby areas and health facilities.
