Buenos Aires is known for its boisterous carnivals and its stunning European-style architecture and atmosphere. It’s a very cosmopolitan city, with the huge Playa de Mayo at its heart and an exceptionally diverse shopping and culinary scene. Stately buildings such as the presidential palace with their ironwork balconies and stuccoed facades are reminiscent of old Madrid, although the former bullfighting ring at Plaza San Martin has been converted into an attractive park.
With a reputation for punctuality, efficiency and cleanliness, Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (also known as Tokyo International Airport) is one of the country’s main air transport hubs and connects to destinations across the globe.
This is an exceptionally busy airport, handling over 72 million passengers a year, making it the fourth-busiest airport for passenger numbers in the world. However, passengers flying from Tokyo with Qatar Airways will find this to be a very personalised airport, where staff are quick to help and the emphasis is on an excellent passenger experience from the moment you step through the doors.
Transportation and parking
Tokyo’s public transport system is legendary, and the same is true of its connections to the airport. Direct trains run between Haneda and Narita Airport (Tokyo’s other major airport), and the airport is also served directly by Tokyo’s Monorail service, which has a dedicated station at each terminal. The Keikyu train network also connects to Tokyo and other cities across Japan to the airport. Bus routes are just as plentiful, including the Haneda Airport Express bus.
Taxis operate on a set fare basis and the journey time by taxi from the centre of Tokyo to the airport is approximately 25-40 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Both short and long-term parking is available at each terminal, with shuttle buses running between the parking areas and the terminals. There are approximately 3,000 spaces at the International terminal, but these fill up quickly. Pre-booking is advised.
Arriving in Tokyo
Passengers flying from Tokyo with Qatar Airways depart from the International Terminal. The check-in and security process is efficient, so it is sufficient to arrive approximately one hour before your flight is due to leave. A number of public lounges are located in the International Departures Area 4F, and a private VIP lounge is also available.
Facilities and amenities
Facilities are excellent at the airport, and it even has its own shopping ‘street’ where you’ll find a wide selection of luxury goods, accessories and electronics in particular. You’ll also be able to access the Duty Free shopping area once you have passed through security checks. Wi-Fi is free and extensive throughout the terminal, and there are also fixed Internet points in the Departures area.
Diners are well catered for, with excellent quality vendors serving both Japanese and international cuisine ranging from on-the-go noodles and snacks through to more substantial restaurant menus.
Ezeiza is part of the huge city of Buenos Aires, and the location of the main airport serving the city. Book a flight to Ezeiza with Qatar Airways and you arrive in a vibrant, energetic and typically South American city with all the colour, noise and brashness that goes with this complex location.
Across Buenos Aires there are hundreds of sites to explore. The city is divided into Districts, so it’s best to plan your visit carefully so that you get the most from your trip. What you will find wherever you go in Buenos Aires and Ezeiza in particular is that the people are incredibly friendly and eager to show you the very best of their city.
Ezeiza is primarily the location of the airport and much of Buenos Aires industrial heartland, including newly developed areas for its growing high-tech industries. This attracts business travellers from all over the world, but if you want to see the old Buenos Aires then head into the city centre. The Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes is the country’s most important arts museum and has works of international significance in its galleries.
The Manzana de las Luces is Buenos Aires’ key centre for culture and learning, and is home to workshops and the fascinating tunnels and underground network of workshops that have been in use since the 18th century.
You cannot experience Buenos Aires without the Tango – the legendary dance invented in the city. The best place to see an authentic Tango (rather than one that has been adapted for the tourists) is at a ‘Milonga’. Head to the Salon Canning, El Beso, Porteño y Bailarin and the Maldita Milonga for the best dancers, or pick up a guide map called the TangoMap Guide to find one in the area near you.
Two hugely popular sports in Argentina are football and polo. Their two football teams, the Boca Juniors and the River Plate, are followed with real passion, and tickets to their matches (known as the "Super Clasico") are the hottest tickets in town. For horse lovers the polo matches held at the polo fields in Las Canitas, especially the major December tournament, are a must see.
Flights to Buenos Aires with Qatar Airways land at Ministro Pistarini International Airport, also known as Ezeiza International 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 Buenos Aires please check the visa and passport requirements.
