Fly from Kuwait with Qatar Airways and connect to our hub in Doha, as well as other destinations around the world. Kuwait International Airport is modern, gleaming and expanding rapidly, with a new terminal due to open in 2016.
In the meantime this busy hub provides excellent links to the international air transport network, as well as having a few pleasant surprises for passengers too.

Facilities and amenities
One unique aspect of Kuwait International Airport is the on-site Kuwait Air Force museum. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Kuwait Air Force through the years.
It is worth arriving a little early to the airport, so you can take a quick look around the museum before catching your Qatar Airways flight.

Baby care areas, a health centre, banks and a hotel are also available.
While most people will constrain their visit to Narita purely to travel to and from the airport on the way to nearby Tokyo, the town itself does have plenty to offer visitors who are willing to stop and look around. Book a flight to Narita with Qatar Airways and you could discover this interesting little destination for yourself, before you head to the bright lights of Tokyo.
Charming and with plenty of traditional Japanese character, Narita is a relatively tranquil location that gives visitors a taste of the real Japan. The people are friendly and welcoming, and are happy to show tourists willing to interrupt their journey to the capital around their little town. Nearby attractions make this off-the-beaten-track location well worth exploring.
The town is known for its ancient buildings, and one of the best is the Naritasan Shinshō-ji Temple, the site of which dates back to the 10th century. Classical pagodas and tranquil gardens are complemented by a European style garden too, making it an interesting fusion of two distinctly different cultures.
To really understand a little more about Japanese culture, take a trip to Boso No Mura, a living museum dedicated to the culture of the Japanese people. It includes a reconstructed traditional Japanese street, burial mound and a samurai residence. The centre hosts festivals and events celebrating the native culture of Japan’s islands too.
The Museum of Aeronautical Science is about 15 minutes by bus from the airport, while at the northern end of the runway you’ll find a surprisingly tranquil spot, Sakura-no-Yama Hill. This is a great spot to watch the aeroplanes take off and land, and during the spring the cherry trees turn this peaceful little park into a riot of colour.
Flights to Narita with Qatar Airways land at Narita Airport, Japan’s largest international air transport hub. 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.
