The types of services and products you would normally associate with the finest 5-star hotel come as standard on flights from Mumbai to Doha with Qatar Airways. These include delicious in-flight cuisine and a generous amount of space for you to stretch if you need to, an attentive cabin crew and a list of award-winning services to choose from to help pass the time. By the time you arrive in Qatar’s stunning capital you’ll feel pampered and fit for anything.
Doha is a fast-developing city that overlooks the beautiful waters of the Persian Gulf and is famous now for its ever-changing skyline of thrusting steel and glass towers and other architectural wonders. People are drawn here from across the Emirates, so the city has a very cosmopolitan atmosphere, and in the plush restaurants and glitzy new malls you’ll find a world of shopping and dining opportunities.
Also known as Bombay, Mumbai is one of the busiest cities in the world. Home to over 20 million people, it’s also a huge attraction for overseas business and leisure visitors.
Passengers flying from Mumbai with Qatar Airways will travel through the ultra-modern Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, one of the most important air transport hubs and ranked as the third best in the world in the 25–40 million passengers category by Airports Council International in 2013.
Facilities are outstanding and the efficiency and friendliness of the staff means that travellers will have an excellent passenger experience from start to finish.
Parking and transportation
Mumbai has an extremely efficient public transport system, although because of the sheer number of people crammed into a few square miles, buses and coaches can be very busy.
The transport network includes the Mumbai Suburban Railway, Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport (BEST) buses, taxis and auto rickshaws, giving travellers plenty of options for getting to and from the airport.
There are 1500 parking spaces at the International terminal and frequent travellers can book a monthly parking pass, which is considerably more cost effective and efficient.
Arriving at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport
Passengers flying from Mumbai with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 2, which is the main International Terminal.
This huge, brand new terminal has 192 check-in counters and 60 immigration counters, and again because of the sheer number of passengers and flights passing through this airport every day, it is advisable to arrive at least two hours before your flight is due to depart. Lounges are available for all passengers to relax in, including exclusive VIP lounge areas.
Facilities and amenities
The airport is well served with facilities, including plenty of retail outlets and Duty Free areas, where you can buy everything from local handicrafts to top quality perfume. The Terminal has its own art exhibitions too, which are a pleasure to look at while waiting for your flight.
Wi-Fi is available in public areas, and there are also a luxury wellness area offering everything from quick reflexology foot massages to full body massage and spa treatments.
