The capital of southern India’s Telangana state is a city rich with tradition and history. Hyderabad also competes with Chennai and Bangalore for the title of IT capital of India. Google and Microsoft’s Indian headquarters are both located here, while at the other extreme the Old City quarter is packed with more rooted cultural attractions from the region’s exotic past.
The USA’s capital and one of the most iconic cities in the world, Washington D.C. is also an incredibly busy international air hub. Located approximately 26 miles west of the city, the airport’s main terminal is architecturally striking. A huge curved roof arches gracefully into the air. Be warned though, this is a very big airport so you may need a little extra time to orientate yourself.
Transportation and parking
The airport is so large that a train takes passengers from the main building to the concourses. Valet parking (for up to 45 days) is available close to the main terminal, while a selection of other short and long-term parking options are located in garages 1 and 2, with up to 8,325 covered spaces available.
A large economy parking area is located near Route 28 airport exits, providing more than 12,000 spaces. A regular shuttle service runs from the economy parking areas to the main terminal.
A selection of vans, taxis and buses take passengers from Washington D.C. to and from the airport, and a limousine service are also available.
Arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport
Passengers on flights from Washington D.C. with Qatar Airways will need to go to Departure Area 2 to find the Qatar Airways check-in desk.
Once you have passed through security you will need to board an Aero Train, which will take you to the gates on the four main concourses. Gates H and Z are connected to the main terminal building, so there is no need to use the Aero Train to access these gates.
The security checkpoints are located on the mezzanine level.
Facilities and amenities
Dulles International Airport is vast, and offers passengers a wide selection of amenities and facilities. Car rental, hotel information and even a ‘pet relief’ area is located on the ground floor.
On the departures level you will find gift shops and cafés serving everything from snacks to full restaurant-standard meals.
An eclectic blend of ancient and ultra-modern (Hyderabad is the Indian home of IT giants Google and Microsoft), this bustling city is a magnet for business travellers, and tourists who are looking for a destination that still retains its own individuality rather than a homogeny of predictable resorts and attractions. The result is a destination full of interest and energy.
Book a flight to Hyderabad with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a destination that hasn’t been over-sanitised but still holds onto that authentic Indian feel. It’s hot, busy, and the scent of spices is heavy in the air, making it a truly memorable and genuinely Indian experience.
Many of the sites and attractions are clustered into the Old City, the historical quarter of Hyderabad. Here you’ll find the stunning Charminar (literally ‘Four Minarets’), and the view of the city from the 48metre-high towers is breathtaking.
The Chowmahalla Palace at Khilwat is well worth a visit, while the Qutb Shahi Tombs have the iconic domed design that is instantly recognisable as a classic Indian architectural signature.
Golconda Fort is magnificent, and puts on a show-stopping light and sound display that tells the story of Golkonda against the dramatic backdrop of the fort itself. After a visit it’s well worth exploring the labyrinth of streets that wind their way around the base of the fort for some locally-made souvenirs and trinkets.
To find out why so many high-tech companies are making Hyderabad their home, head to the B.M. Birla Planetarium and Science & Technological Museum, an interesting and eclectic museum.
