Houston has a diverse and multicultural population, and a world-class arts and entertainment scene. If you love food then you’ll love Houston, as there’s a great range of exclusive restaurants here, and the shopping malls and museums will keep you occupied for many happy hours.
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.
America’s fourth largest city and the heart of the ‘Lone Star State’ of Texas, Houston is one of the most popular destinations in the U.S. A flight to Houston with Qatar Airways takes you to a Southern city that is also thriving in the arts and culture scene.

The best way to see the attractions (and for a discounted price) is to pick up a Houston CityPASS . The pass will give you entry into the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Downtown Aquarium, the Children’s Museum of Houston, and the Houston Space Center.
Don’t forget to make time for a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts and Houston Zoo.
