Book a flight from Dammam to Houston with Qatar Airways

Head off to the wide open spaces of the Lone Star State with flights from Dammam to Houston, Texas with Qatar Airways. Touch down in the oil capital of America, ready to do business, see friends and family or just explore that legendary Texan hospitality. Enjoy our onboard award-winning experience from the moment you step into our luxury aircraft to the moment you land.

Houston is one of the most important commercial centres in the country. Despite its role as an internationally important commerce hub, it hasn’t lost any of that ‘Southern charm’ and still offers a warm welcome to leisure visitors from around the world.

 

Flying from Dammam

Surrounded by dramatic sand dunes and the vast open spaces of the Arabian Desert, Dammam Airport (known as King Fahd International Airport) is truly vast with six levels housing a huge selection of facilities, check-in desks, lounges and porter services.

Transportation and parking

The airport has a multi-storey car park attached to it. On the roof of this car park, you can find a mosque, which can be accessed from the passenger terminal through two enclosed, air-conditioned bridges and an additional open bridge.

The airport is around 50 kilometres from Dammam city centre, but is well served by frequent bus links and taxis. Carrier SAPTCO runs shuttle buses between the airport and the bus station every hour. The trip takes around 45 minutes. Taxis are available and are located in the rank outside the main entrance. A limousine service is also available.

Arriving at King Fahd International Airport

There is only one terminal at the airport, but it is vast. Departure check-in is located on Level 6, while boarding gates are on Level 4. 

Facilities and amenities

King Fahd International Airport was the first in Saudi Arabia to open duty-free shops within its airport. There is a separate area dedicated to shops selling goods that passengers might find useful during their travels, and in the arrivals area you will also find plenty of cafés, restaurants and banks.

ATMs and currency exchange points are available in the departure and arrival areas. For a light meal with a view, head to the fourth floor (above check-in), where you'll find an observation deck and a café serving a buffet selection of food.

 

Arriving in Houston, Texas

America’s fourth largest city and the heart of the ‘Lone Star State’ of Texas, Houston is one of the most popular destinations in the U.S. A flight to Houston with Qatar Airways takes you to a Southern city that is also thriving in the arts and culture scene.

Museums and galleries line its boulevards, while attractions are designed to give you the full Texan experience throughout your stay. Warm, welcoming and friendly,  Houston will encompass you in true Southern hospitality.

Tourist attractions


The best way to see the attractions (and for a discounted price) is to pick up a Houston CityPASS .  The pass will give you entry into the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Downtown Aquarium, the Children’s Museum of Houston, and the Houston Space Center.

 

Don’t forget to make time for a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts and Houston Zoo.

 If you are up for a stroll in an incredibly tranquil and peaceful environment, then visit the Rice University campus, which is set in woodland and is famous for its public artworks and architectural features.

 

If you fancy taking part in some outdoor pursuits, such as jogging or mountain biking, then head to Memorial Park.
