As well as being popular with tourists, Delhi is a lively economic hub too. It's the largest commercial centre in North India and home to international businesses and brands.
One of the busiest airports in the world, London Heathrow is at the very epicentre of the international air transport network. Investment has been poured into its development, and in 2014 the newly constructed Terminal 5 was voted World's Best Airport Terminal in the Skytrax Annual World Airport Awards.
Handling more than 73 million passengers a year, London Heathrow is a remarkable feat of logistical organisation. Fly from London Heathrow with Qatar Airways to a wide range of destinations all over the world.
Transportation and parking
London Heathrow is served by the London Underground ‘tube’ service, making it easy to reach in just half an hour, from the very centre of London. For passengers with Qatar Airways flying from Terminal 4, the terminal has its own dedicated tube station.
There are also hundreds of buses every day from the capital, and coach services transporting passengers from all over the city to the airport. Parking is at a premium, and although there are both short and long-term options, it is best to book parking in advance. A valet service is available.

Book a flight to Delhi with Qatar Airways and you’ll be enchanted with this incredible city from the moment you touch down. With a heritage that is said to date back over 5,000 years, it has been destroyed and rebuilt many times, turning it into a maze of streets, squares, alleyways and districts that could take a lifetime to explore fully. Its incredible atmosphere is bound to draw you back again and again.
At the top of most visitors’ lists of places to see is the iconic Red Fort. This vivid red sandstone fort was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (who also built the Taj Mahal) as his palace in 1648. Surrounded by beautifully lush, green gardens, it’s still a magnificent sight today.
Sitting between the Fort and the main gate is Chatta Chowk or the Covered Bazaar, where you can buy a wide selection of souvenirs, trinkets and jewellery. Also make time to visit the Diwan-i-Khas, (Hall of Private Audience). A beautiful building constructed entirely out of marble, it is where the emperor received special visitors.
Humayun's Tomb in south Delhi, near Hazrat Nizamuddin station, is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and a truly spectacular building. It is surrounded by immaculate gardens in the Persian Char Bagh (four corners) style.
Dating back even further is another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Qutub complex in Mehrauli, which dates from the Slave Dynasty of 1206 to 1290. It’s a complex of beautiful buildings including the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque and the intricately carved Tomb of Iltutmish.
