To experience the best in luxury air travel, book flights from Kuwait to Maldives with Qatar Airways. Flying becomes a real pleasure when you are served delicious in-flight meals and have adequate space to relax and unwind. Friendly, attentive cabin crew fulfil your every need, and our state-of-the-art fleet of aircraft will get you to the glorious Maldives in comfort and style.
The Maldivian capital is a hectic powerhouse for an otherwise refreshingly laid-back nation. Its brightly coloured, tall buildings overlook the placid, turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea, and the city’s smart restaurants and alcohol-free bars jostle with lively markets and shops to create a really pleasurable visitor experience. Life in Maldives is a world away from the infinity pools and resort buffets that is often all visitors see of this island paradise.
Fly from Kuwait with Qatar Airways and connect to our hub in Doha, as well as other destinations around the world. Kuwait International Airport is modern, gleaming and expanding rapidly, with a new terminal due to open in 2016.
In the meantime this busy hub provides excellent links to the international air transport network, as well as having a few pleasant surprises for passengers too.
Transportation and parking
Car hire is available from nearly a dozen providers, including some of the largest car hire companies in the world. Both short-term and long-term parking is available close to the Terminal.
A fleet of taxis transport passengers to and from the airport (taxi ranks are positioned outside the main terminal entrances), and buses run regularly from the centre of Kuwait City to the airport. A pre-booked limousine service is available on request.
Arriving at Kuwait International Airport
Flights from Kuwait with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 1. A meet-and-assist service is available, with a personal concierge looking after you from the moment you arrive to the moment you board your flight.
The luxurious Pearl Lounge is available free for First and Business Class travellers, while other passengers may access the lounge for a fee. The lounge offers free Wi-Fi and other amenities.
Facilities and amenities
One unique aspect of Kuwait International Airport is the on-site Kuwait Air Force museum. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Kuwait Air Force through the years.
It is worth arriving a little early to the airport, so you can take a quick look around the museum before catching your Qatar Airways flight. The airport also offers plenty of other facilities including a luxurious Airport Mall with a wealth of retail outlets, and restaurants. Baby care areas, a health centre, banks and a hotel are also available.
Arriving in Hulhulé after a flight to the Maldives with Qatar Airways, the first thing that will strike you is that this genuinely is a tropical island paradise.
Largely unknown among tourists until the 1970s, the Maldives are today one of the top luxury destinations in the world. Crystal clear oceans, white sandy beaches and swaying palm trees – the Maldives are the epitome of a tropical holiday destination.
The collection of over 1,100 coral islands means that the most common method of transport is by boat or seaplane. Island hopping is a great way to experience the delights above water.
Under the waves there is a second paradise waiting to be explored, and the Maldives offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world.
The Maldives is different to many destinations in that there are relatively few attractions to visit on land. The main attractions of the islands are natural, rather than man-made, so to discover the very best of the islands’ riches you will need to don a swimsuit and head out with one of the many diving parties to explore the coral reefs.
Filled with brilliantly coloured fish and a wealth of natural wonders, the waters of the Maldives offer a rich tapestry of aquatic colour and beauty.
If you’re not a swimmer or prefer to stay on dry land then a visit to the nation’s capital island of Malé for some casual shopping and to see the ‘real’ Maldives away from the custom-made resorts of the islands.
Flights to the Maldives with Qatar Airways land at Malé 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 the Maldives please check the visa and passport requirements.
