Jeddah has been a magnet for traders and pilgrims for centuries, and in addition to being the Kingdom’s commercial capital it is packed with tourist attractions and upmarket shopping and dining venues. In the heart of Old Jeddah you’ll find the ancient Al-Balad district with its busy souks and coral houses, and if you time your trip you’ll catch one of the famous arts and crafts festivals that are regularly staged here and across Saudi Arabia.
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.

The Plaza Premium Lounge is open to all customers, and there are also private lounges that can be rented by the hour.

One of Saudi Arabia’s main commercial centres, Jeddah has also been a trading post for centuries, making it a key location in the Middle East. Today it welcomes visitors from around the world with an eclectic mix of ancient and modern, traditional and contemporary. As well as being a major tourist resort, it’s also the main entrance point for pilgrims making the Hajj to Mecca and Medina.
Book a flight to Jeddah with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a cosmopolitan city that’s full of life and interest. From exclusive shopping malls and boutiques to ancient mosques filled with stunning traditional Islamic design, Jeddah is a vibrant and fascinating location.
Still marked by the gates that once defended it from raiders, Jeddah’s number one tourist location has to be al-Balad, or the Old Town. Here you’ll find traditional Jeddah life in a warren of alleyways, streets and squares, where souqs sell spices and jewellery, and a few remaining examples of coral houses still exist.
The Corniche offers spectacular views of the Red Sea and for anyone who wants to take part in diving or snorkelling trips, this is the place to head to hire equipment, boats or join organised groups heading out daily. The Corniche is also home to the tallest fountain in the world, the King Fahd Fountain.
There are plenty of museums in Jeddah, including the Jeddah Regional Museum of Archaeology and Ethnography, and the Nasseef House, which gives first-time visitors an excellent introduction to the culture and history of Saudi Arabia.
