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.
Facilities and amenities
A 30-minute free Wi-Fi service is available for passengers, and longer access to the network is available for a small charge.
A comprehensive business centre offers a wide range of corporate services, and there are plenty of other facilities on offer including prayer rooms, baby care rooms, banks and medical services.
An excellent selection of retail outlets provide you with everything you could want from luxury leather goods to books and perfumes, while a choice of cafés and restaurants serve international cuisine, quick snacks and coffee.
This city within a city is part of the state of Sao Paulo, and is its second most populous city. The name refers to the original indigenous people of the region, although today you are more likely to encounter skyscrapers and a mix of residents from all over the globe, rather than a traditional native South American community.
Book a flight to Guarulhos with Qatar Airways and you can experience all the luxury of a modern and efficient service, coupled with traditional standards of service and courtesy. You’ll land in a vibrant and busy city that has plenty to offer both business and leisure visitors.
Despite its rapidly expanding commercial centre, the city is well known for its parks and open spaces. Some of the best to visit if you want to escape the somewhat frenetic pace of life include the delightful Guarulhos Forest Garden, the tranquillity of Maia Woods, or a fine example of what can happen when municipal parks are done well, the lush and relaxing Cantareira State Park.
The city is focused on the arts, and two theatres in particular stand out, the Nelson Rodriques Theater and the Padre Bento Theater. However, if you want to experience an even greater arts scene then the city of Sao Paulo itself has a huge selection of venues to choose from, including classical music and contemporary dance.
A short journey will take you into the heart of Sao Paulo itself, with its Historic Center that actually celebrates contemporary architecture rather than older buildings. You will also find the majority of the State’s museums in Sao Paulo, including the Museu do Ipiranga and Memorial da América Latina, which both hold extensive collections of native artefacts and art.
Flights to Guarulhos with Qatar Airways land at São Paulo–Guarulhos International Airport, one of the busiest air transport hubs in South America. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure.
