Opened in 1981, the King Abdulaziz International Airport welcomes not only travellers from around the world, but pilgrims on the Hajj to Mecca too. Its huge complex covers over 100 square kilometres, and is one of the biggest air transport hubs in the Middle East.
Transportation and parking
Because of the sheer size of the airport and the distance between the north and south terminals, taxis provide the main means of transportation in and around the airport.
During the Hajj period, the volume of passengers increases significantly, so if you are flying from Jeddah with Qatar Airways during this period it is probably best to book a taxi or limousine in advance. Regular buses from the city and other locations run regularly to the airport. There is ample parking available close to the North Terminal.
Arriving at King Abdulaziz International Airport
There are two main passenger terminals, as well as the iconic, tented structure of the Hajj Terminal, which is reserved exclusively for pilgrims on the Hajj.
Flights from Jeddah with Qatar Airways leave from the North Terminal (along with most other international flights). Be aware that the two terminals are nearly 8 kilometres apart, and the only way to get from one to the other is by airport taxi.
Facilities and amenities
As King Abdulaziz International Airport is in the middle of an extensive development program, current facilities may be a little limited.
However, the new developments will bring in everything from a purpose-built food hall and mall with exclusive brand shopping available, as well as a large mosque, lounges and wellness areas for passengers.
The heart of French Canada and the cultural and economic capital of Quebec, Montreal is a bi-lingual city that welcomes visitors from around the world. It’s an ultra-modern city with an internationally important commercial sector that also has a well-deserved reputation as one of the liveliest and culturally diverse cities in Canada.
Book a flight to Montreal with Qatar Airways and you will discover a city that loves its comedy, music, theatre and dance, as well as one that embraces innovation and technology.
For visitors, most attractions are focused in and around the Ville-Marie Borough which is divided into four different neighbourhoods. In the Downtown area you’ll find the main commercial centre, as well as the Parc du Mont-Royal, while Old Montreal is home to the beautifully preserved old waterfront area. Montreal’s Chinatown is the third largest in Canada, while the Parc Jean-Drapeau is home to the islands of Île Sainte-Helene and Île Notre-Dame.
Montreal is famous for its festivals, from the Just for Laughs comedy festival in July, through to the Festival du Monde Arabe in November, which celebrates the culture and music of the Arab world. June 24th is Quebec's national holiday, and visitors head to the Maisonneuve Park for a spectacular show celebrating the culture and history of the city.
The Gilles Villeneuve racing circuit, home of the Montreal Formula 1 Grand Prix, can be found at the Parc Jean-Drapeau, where you’ll also find an artificial beach and the hugely popular Montreal Casino.
