Fly from Kuala Lumpur to Abu Dhabi with Qatar Airways and discover what luxury travel feels like. Our award-winning service and fleet of state-of-the-art aircraft transport you between these two cities, making it the perfect route for business travellers, entrepreneurs, and adventure seekers.
Abu Dhabi is a glittering jewel of a city, with a long and strong connection to trade and the sea. Its position on an island that juts out into the Persian Gulf has made it a major port for merchants and traders for generations. Today, its marina is filled with luxury yachts and much of the international trading is done in its ultra-modern commercial sector.
Opened in 1998, Kuala Lumpur International Airport has quickly gained a reputation as an efficient, friendly and pleasant start to any international journey.
The airport was voted to have the World’s Best Immigration Service in the 2013 Skytrax World Airport Awards. Qatar Airways flights from Kuala Lumpur connect to destinations all over the world, making this an important international hub and a key part of our network of departure points in the Asia-Pacific region.
