Dammam is Saudi Arabia’s fifth largest city, an important financial and commercial hub with lots to offer tourists. This modern city has a growing economy based on the oil production industry, and whilst once it was a quiet village it is now a thoroughly modern destination with a sophisticated infrastructure, a thriving business quarter, luxury hotels and air-conditioned shopping centres. Popular tourist attractions in Dammam include Dammam Corniche and Al Morjan Island.
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.
Transportation and parking
Kuala Lumpur International Airport has an extensive network of ground transport options, including various bus routes to and from the capital, around the airport itself.
A choice of train options are also available, with non-stop KLIA Ekspres trains running every 15-20 minutes, while KLIA Transit trains also provide a regular service. Note that tickets are not interchangeable between the two services. There are two main car parks offering 11,442 spaces, with a long-term parking lot located at Block A.
Arriving at Kuala Lumpur International Airport
International flights, including those with Qatar Airways, depart from the main Terminal (the smaller, older KLIA2 is used mainly for internal flights).
There is a variety of check-in methods available for passengers, including an online service and an advance baggage check-in, where you can check your bags up to eight hours in advance of your flight. The Plaza Premium Lounge is open to all customers, and there are also private lounges that can be rented by the hour.
Facilities and amenities
Kuala Lumpur International Airport has plenty of facilities to offer, including baby-changing areas, quiet rooms, prayer rooms and a massage centre to help passengers relax.
A number of retail outlets provide travel essentials, as well as high-end luxury goods and duty-free purchases. A choice of restaurants, eateries and cafés provide everything from light snacks and drinks to more substantial meals.
Dammam is the third largest city in Saudi Arabia after Riyadh and Jeddah. This modern, forward-looking location also acknowledges its history and past with an eclectic mix of incredibly modern architecture that subtly incorporates more ancient design motifs and features. The result is a city that is stunningly beautiful and an oasis in the middle of a vast desert.
Book a flight to Dammam with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a fascinating city that is beginning to attract more leisure visitors every year. Although a relatively recent addition to the visitor’s map in Saudi Arabia, Dammam offers those who come to the city a warm and friendly welcome.
Dammam’s Corniche is perhaps one of the most popular meeting places for both tourists and locals. Looking out over the Persian Gulf and with a cooling breeze in the evening, this is a relaxing spot that has plenty of cafés and restaurants. A four-kilometre long track allows you to stretch your legs and take in the views.
An extension of the Corniche is Al Morjan Island, a small artificial island with a monument at the centre. But the most striking monument in the city has to be its enormous flagpole, a staggering 60m high and the tallest in the kingdom. It is a landmark that the locals are very proud of, and also serves as a good marker point if you get lost.
Flights to Dammam with Qatar Airways land at King Fahd 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 Dammam please check the visa and passport requirements.
