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. Note that there is a 2.6-metre height restriction on Terminal 4’s forecourt.
Arriving at London Heathrow
Flights from London Heathrow with Qatar Airways leave from Terminal 4, which is located at the south end of the southern runway, and is connected to Terminals 1, 2 and 3 by the Heathrow Cargo Tunnel.
Qatar Airways flights from London Heathrow make use of the very latest A380 airbuses in their service to Doha, as well as a luxury Business Class-only service using a modern A319 for one of its six daily flights to Doha. Passenger boarding gates are situated close to the check-in and security halls.
Amenities and facilities
Because of its international importance, London Heathrow offers a vast array of facilities and amenities, from baby care and children’s crèches, to shoeshine services, banking, Wi-Fi access and prayer rooms.
A broad selection of luxury retail outlets stock the very best in accessories, watches, jewellery and fashion, while a number of outstanding restaurants, eateries and snack bars serve everything from full meals to light bites.
Phuket is actually Thailand’s largest island, and is a hugely popular destination for adventure tourists and travellers wishing to discover more about this enigmatic country. A tropical paradise blended with a vibrant and energetic metropolis, it is also a big draw for entrepreneurs and business travellers, thanks to a burgeoning high-tech sector.
Book a flight to Phuket with Qatar Airways and discover the gateway to Thailand. Famous for its flowers and the warm, friendly welcome visitors receive from its inhabitants, there is also plenty to see and do in Phuket. It is little wonder that Phuket is usually in the top ten of must-see destinations around the world.
As an island, fishing is central to the culture of the local people. The AC's Phuket Fishing Park allows visitors to go fishing for arapaimas, red-tailed catfish, alligator gars, and Siamese giant carp. If you prefer to watch wildlife rather than catch it then a visit to the Chana Charoen Road Crocodile Farm is an exhilarating experience.
Thailand’s Buddhist temples and statues are spectacular, and none more so than the Big Buddha, a white marble statue on the top of Naka Kerd Mountain, where you can also get a fabulous, bird’s eye view over Phuket’s east coast. Another great spot to see those extraordinary sunsets is Prom Thep Cape, 1.5 miles from Rawai Beach.
For something a little more unusual (and truly mind-boggling), try the Phuket Trick Eye Museum, a gallery of 3D paintings and optical illusions. Siam Niramit Phuket Arts Theatre puts on fascinating plays and performances that immerse visitors in the local culture, or check out the truly bizarre Baan Teelanka & A-Maze-in-Phuke, a house that has been built completely upside down and with a garden maze that will keep the kids amused for hours.
