Transportation and parking
Short-term car parks are situated just a few metres from the terminal’s entrance, while longer-term parking is accessible in a nearby location. Public buses are available to take passengers from long-term parking facilities to the main terminals.
The clean and efficient Metro trains run roughly every 10 minutes to and from Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, and there are plenty of taxis available. Drop-off points are located outside the main terminal entrances.
Buses arrive and leave from stands opposite Terminal 1, 2 and 3, but you will need to buy a Nol card in advance as the drivers do not take cash.
Arriving at Dubai International Airport
Qatar Airways flights from Dubai depart from Terminal 1 at Dubai International Airport. However, Qatar Airways also flies from the new Dubai World Central Airport, so it is important to check which departure point your flight is leaving from.
To save time, visitors from countries that are granted automatic visas on entry to Dubai may find it useful to purchase an E-gate card to speed up immigration formalities. The E-gate card office is situated in the upstairs food court area of the Terminal 1 departures concourse.

A fascinating blend of Mediterranean style and North African spirit, the Algerian capital of Algiers has been an internationally important trading post for a millennium.

Book a flight to Algiers with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a city with a warm welcome and an energetic, passionate approach to life.
Residents of Algiers are hospitable and generous, and both business and leisure travellers will find this to be an exceptionally friendly city. Today, modern architecture sits alongside more traditional Moorish design, blending ancient and modern into an eclectic mix of styles.
The must see attraction of Algiers has to be the city’s Casbah, Algiers’ ancient heart that captures a myriad of smells, colours and sounds into a mind-blowing cacophony of uniquely Algerian vibrancy. This part of the city dates back to the 17th century and has been declared an UNESCO World Heritage site, such is its importance.
The Notre Dame d'Afrique is an extraordinary basilica that dates back to the 19th century, but adopts a very traditional North African design. It is a stunning piece of architecture (note that photography is not allowed inside the basilica itself) and a prime example of the Neo-Byzantine style pioneered by French architect Jean Eugène Fromageau.
The truly stunning garden of Le Jardin d'Essai du Hamma is an oasis of tranquil beauty in the heart of the city. Laid out in a traditional Islamic style, this garden is beautifully maintained and offers a cool escape from the heat and noise of the city.
Other attractions in this culturally rich city include the imposing Fort Santa Cruz and the spectacular Roman ruins at both Timgad and Djemila.
