When you choose flights from Kuala Lumpur to Rome with Qatar Airways, you aren’t just experiencing a simple journey from point A to point B - you are experiencing luxury air travel at its very best. Everything we do, from the quality of our award-winning cuisine to the attentiveness of our professional cabin crew, is about achieving this high standard of excellence – from the moment you check in to the moment you land.
With a rich history that spans millennia, Rome is one of the best places to visit even if you have only a passing interest in culture and history. From the Vatican to the Capitoline Museum, this amazing destination is teeming with treasures, many of which can be encountered just by walking through Rome’s charming city streets. Beyond this remarkable heritage, Rome is also a thoroughly modern city, key economic centre and a destination filled with luxury shopping centres, premium hotels and amazing restaurants.
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.
If you want to experience everything that Rome has to offer but want a little bit of individuality thrown into the mix, book a flight to Fiumicino with Qatar Airways and discover an often-overlooked part of this beautiful region. Originally a simple fishing village just a few miles from the historic capital, Fiumicino is today an attractive destination loved by locals and travellers in the know.
A much more tranquil and sedate pace of life lulls you into a relaxed state of mind, and if you want the vibrancy and energy of Rome then it’s only a short drive away. But there is plenty in this pretty location to keep you interested and amused.
The biggest attraction in the area is the ancient Roman settlement of Ostia Antica, the historic ancestor of the modern town. This bay area at the mouth of the Tiger river is picturesque and a haven for wildlife, making it a serene change from the usual tourist destinations.
One of the more unusual attractions is a small mud volcano that popped into existence on the Coccia di Morto roundabout in 2013! Although currently dormant, local geologists (and road cleaners) are keeping a careful eye on it just in case it becomes active again.
Shopping in Fiumicino is surprisingly good, and if you don’t want to fight through the crowds in nearby Rome then there is plenty to buy in the new Malo Moda mall or the smaller boutiques in the town itself. The main ingredient to any trip to Fiumicino is relaxation – a visit to this location is a welcome change from the frenetic pace of life in nearby Rome.
Flights to Fiumicino with Qatar Airways land at Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport. 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 Fiumicino please check the visa and passport requirements.
