The remarkable curved architecture and stunning design concept of the ultra-modern Bangkok Airport makes it a pleasure to fly from, and one of the most memorable airports in the world.
From its vaulted ceiling to its elegant lounges, extensive facilities and excellent transport connections, Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is the departure point for Qatar Airways flights from Bangkok.
Transportation and parking
Transport to and from the airport is extensive, making it easy to get around. Four bus lines, A, B, C and D, cover the whole of the complex and provide regular connections from the transport centre to the passenger terminals, VIP lounge and hotels.
Taxis arrive at the main departures point, and the airport has an extensive limousine service, offering six different types of limousines and a total of 380 cars available around the clock. For details, contact the Limousine counter Level 2, Baggage Claim Hall or Arrival Hall.
Between the airport’s official Novotel hotel and the terminal building are two 5-storey car park buildings that can hold up to 5,000 cars on short and long-stay parking.
Arriving at Suvarnabhumi International Airport
Travellers boarding Qatar Airways flights will need to go to the departures area on Level 4 within the main terminal. The airport is very large, so take advantage of the porter service if you have a lot of luggage. Drop-off points for taxis and cars are located outside the main entrance.
Facilities and amenities
The ultra-modern facilities at the airport make it easy to navigate, despite its size. There are 130 passport control checkpoints for arrivals, and 72 for departures, with 26 customs control checkpoints for arrivals, and eight for departures.
There are about 50 food and drink outlets throughout the terminal. Duty-free shopping is also available in what is practically a mall full of outlets, from high-end luxury goods and perfumes, to confectionery and books.
The Spanish capital is best known for being a major centre of European culture, art, music and dance. It’s also a hugely energetic city full of vibrancy and welcomes business travellers and entrepreneurs as well as tourists.
Book a flight to Madrid with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a wealth of cultural attractions including some of the finest museums in the country, and art collections of international importance. This city really comes alive in the evening, and has a strong café culture that runs late into the night.
At the very heart of the city is Puerta del Sol, a piazza that is the hub of all Madrid’s transport and the venue for the many festivals that bring this city alive all year round. In the centre of the square is the statue of King Charles III on horseback, and the surrounding buildings are superb examples of a range of architecture drawing on Moorish, Renaissance and Gothic influences.
The Palacio Real or Royal Palace is huge, and although it is the official residence of the King of Spain, it is only really used for ceremonial duties. A tour of the palace will take you through hundreds of years of Spanish history in a series of galleries, exhibits and collections of armour, jewellery and ceramics. Be prepared for a long day’s sightseeing, but the effort is certainly worth it and gives you a greater understanding of Spanish culture.
The ‘Museum Triangle’ is Madrid’s museum district, and home to some of the most important galleries and museums in Europe, including Museo del Prado, Reina Sofía National Museum and Art Center, and the Naval Museum. Other museums around the city that are well worth a visit include the American Museum (Museo de América), the Museo de Historia de Madrid and the National Archaeology Museum.
