The grand and imposing capital of the mighty Russian Federation is an iconic, world-class city by any standards, exuding glamour, power and deep-rooted history from its massive Kremlin complex and other monuments and architectural treasures. Imperial gems and relics are inescapable here, but the modern city also has excellent modern shopping malls, fine dining outlets, museums and galleries to explore and enjoy.
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.
From the iconic domes of St Basil’s Cathedral and the drama of Red Square, Moscow is a unique city with its own very individual personality. The people of Moscow are incredibly warm and welcoming, and are particularly friendly towards visitors who come to see their city.
For 860 years this thriving metropolis has been at the heart of Russia. It is the country’s political and financial hub, as well as its commercial centre. Book a flight to Moscow with Qatar Airways and you’ll find that it’s also a popular tourist destination, full of photogenic architecture, fascinating museums and galleries, and a thriving arts scene that includes world-famous dance and ballet companies.
The vast majority of visitors head straight for Red Square, at the very heart of the city. This huge square is also home to St Basil’s Cathedral with its brightly painted ‘onion’ domes, the State History Museum, Lenin's Mausoleum and one of the Kremlin's imposing brick walls.
Inside the Kremlin you’ll find a wealth (quite literally) of attractions, including the famous Diamond collection in the armoury, some stunning architecture and matinee ballet performances in the Conference Centre.
If you need somewhere to rest for a moment, the Kremlin’s gardens are beautifully tranquil oases of calm in the middle of a noisy and busy city. If you want to discover the spirit of Moscow then take a stroll down Old Arbat Street, with its boutiques and street traders.
Art is hugely important to the Russian people, and one of the best collections can be found at The Institute of Russian Realist Art, with a stunning display of the country’s finest realist artists. For a glimpse of modern Moscow, head to the revived Gorky Park, now home to trendy cafés, shops and an open-air cinema. And for a little peace and tranquillity take a stroll around Park Sokolniki, or the lesser known Aptekarskiy ogorod park.
Flights to Moscow with Qatar Airways land at Domodedovo 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 Moscow please check the visa and passport requirements.
