As the capital of Ancient and modern Greece, Athens is a city rich with historical associations. Piraeus, its ancient port, has been undertaking a thriving trade for more than two millennia, and the famous Acropolis dominates the skyline over what has become a thriving cultural centre for the region. Shopping malls and busy restaurants serving international and traditional cuisine dominate the downtown area, whilst Classical sites dot the cityscape and surrounding areas. Enjoy Greek café culture in the shadow of the Parthenon in a truly timeless city.
Soekarno–Hatta International Airport sits on the island of Java, and is the main airport for Indonesia and one of South East Asia’s busiest transport hubs.
Qatar Airways flies regularly from Jakarta to destinations all over the globe, using this modern and very busy airport as one of our South East Asia departure points. Unlike other concrete–and-steel airports, Soekarno-Hatta makes extensive use of beautiful golden timber in its construction, giving it a warm and welcoming feel with a much more personal and intimate atmosphere.
Transportation and parking
The DAMRI shuttle bus operates from all terminals to destinations across the city, including Rawamangun, Blok M/Kebayoran, Gambir, Bekasi, Depok and Bogor.
Taxis arrive outside the main terminal and can also be picked up at the main taxi rank. There is extensive car parking facilities for both short and long-term parking, as well as a valet service, disabled and secure parking. Long-stay parking is available at terminals 2 and 3.

The cradle of modern civilisation, the birthplace of democracy – Athens has to be one of the most influential and iconic destinations in the world. Book a flight to Athens with Qatar Airways and you’ll quickly discover why this extraordinary city is so important not just to the history of Europe, but to its future as well.
Filled with incredible historical sites, Athens is also a modern, working city that is home to nearly four million people.
But it’s the history that most visitors come to experience, and immersing yourself in the relics of the past is a great way to understand so much more about our own modern civilisation, as well as Greece’s incredible past.
Athens packs in the attractions, and at the top of most visitors’ lists has to be the Acropolis, a World Heritage site and standing proud above the city itself. For the best overall view of Athens, especially at sunset, head to Lykavittos Hill.
It’s a hot, dusty climb, but on a clear day you can see beyond the port of Piraeus and out to the islands of Aegina and the Peloponnese.
Back in the city, the Ancient Agora is home to some of the best-preserved temples and monuments from the Bronze Age, and the magnificent Temple of Zeus with its towering columns.
Modern Athens has plenty to offer as well, with dozens of museums and galleries to explore. The best way to see Athens is to take an open-top tour of the city by bus.
