Whilst Bahrain might be one of the smallest of the Persian Gulf states, it certainly punches above its weight, with a vibrant economy and modern cosmopolitan atmosphere. Bahrain is popular with business travellers and tourists. It has a largely petroleum based economy and many amazing tourist attractions, from museums and historical landmarks to luxury shopping centres and hotels.
Opened in 1998, Kuala Lumpur International Airport has quickly gained a reputation as an efficient, friendly and pleasant start to any international journey.
The airport was voted to have the World’s Best Immigration Service in the 2013 Skytrax World Airport Awards. Qatar Airways flights from Kuala Lumpur connect to destinations all over the world, making this an important international hub and a key part of our network of departure points in the Asia-Pacific region.
Transportation and parking
Kuala Lumpur International Airport has an extensive network of ground transport options, including various bus routes to and from the capital, around the airport itself.
A choice of train options are also available, with non-stop KLIA Ekspres trains running every 15-20 minutes, while KLIA Transit trains also provide a regular service. Note that tickets are not interchangeable between the two services. There are two main car parks offering 11,442 spaces, with a long-term parking lot located at Block A.
Arriving at Kuala Lumpur International Airport
International flights, including those with Qatar Airways, depart from the main Terminal (the smaller, older KLIA2 is used mainly for internal flights).
There is a variety of check-in methods available for passengers, including an online service and an advance baggage check-in, where you can check your bags up to eight hours in advance of your flight. The Plaza Premium Lounge is open to all customers, and there are also private lounges that can be rented by the hour.
Facilities and amenities
Kuala Lumpur International Airport has plenty of facilities to offer, including baby-changing areas, quiet rooms, prayer rooms and a massage centre to help passengers relax.
A number of retail outlets provide travel essentials, as well as high-end luxury goods and duty-free purchases. A choice of restaurants, eateries and cafés provide everything from light snacks and drinks to more substantial meals.
Positioned strategically on a headland between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, the kingdom of Bahrain is a vibrant and important member of the Middle East Emirates that has real power and influence in the region.
This ultra-modern, forward-looking location is an energetic powerhouse that welcomes visitors from all over the world.
But tucked away behind the modern buildings and commercial districts is a more ancient landscape filled with reminders of Bahrain’s influence throughout the ages. Book a flight to Bahrain with Qatar Airways and you’ll quickly discover that there’s much more to this kingdom than first meets the eye.
While central locations such as the capital Manama, Riffa, Hamad Town and Muharraq are relatively modern, there are more ancient attractions for visitors to see. Qala'at al-Bahrain (Bahrain Fort) is a 10-minute drive from Manama, and has been beautifully restored to almost its original condition. A museum explaining the significance of the fort is located close by.
In fact, for such a small country Bahrain is practically bristling with forts, with Abu Mahir Fort and the 16th century Arad Fort in Muharraq, and the Sheikh Salman bin Ahmad Al Fateh Fort in Riffa, overlooking the Hunanaiya Valley.
One must-see attraction is the Tree of Life, located in the middle of the desert and considered to be unique because of its remarkable location. Take the Zallaq Highway heading east, and look for the signs to the Tree.
Bahrain is also filled with museums and galleries, with the Beit al Quran in Hoora well worth a visit because of its collection of incredibly rare Islamic manuscripts.
Flights to Bahrain with Qatar Airways land at Bahrain International Airport in Muharraq. 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. Before you fly to Bahrain please check the visa and passport requirements.
