At the airport
Customers flying from Amsterdam with Qatar Airways will usually leave from concourse D or G. The single terminal is split into three different departure halls, so it’s important to ensure you leave plenty of time to get to the correct departure point for your flight. Security at the airport, as in all European departure points, is very tight, so allow extra time to clear check-in and security checks.
Facilities and amenities
It’s easy to get connected at the airport, with free Wi-Fi throughout and internet kiosks in departure areas 1 and 2, as well as specialist multimedia telephone outlets that can also be used for SMS messaging.
