This makes it popular with many business travellers, as well as tourists who flock there to discover its fascinating local culture, museums and art galleries.
Oslo Airport is not just a transport hub, but thanks to its extensive art exhibitions and displays, practically an art gallery too! Qatar Airways flights from Oslo take you from this northern location to a number of Middle Eastern destinations. Located just 19 miles from the centre of Oslo at Gardermoen, the airport offers passengers a smooth, relaxed and distinctly Scandinavian experience.

The Airport Express Coach (SAS Flybussen) runs from Oslo’s city centre to the airport every 20 minutes, while the NOR-WAY Bus Express (Flybussekspressen) and Nettbuss also run from a number of locations to the main terminal.

Book a flight to Dar es Salaam with Qatar Airways and you’ll find that it’s well worth pausing for a while before you travel on into the heart of Africa. This is a city that’s full of energy – an eclectic mix of African, south Asian and Muslim influences, giving it a unique personality and character that charms everyone who experiences this location.
Tanzania celebrates both its diversity and its culture. The Makumbusho Village Museum is a great place to start to find out more about the culture of this country, with a collection of tribal houses reconstructed in every detail, and regular dance displays. The National Museum goes into greater detail, and also has exhibitions of Tanzanian artworks, photographs and artefacts.
One of the most inspiring attractions is Wonder Workshop. Started a few years ago with the express notion of providing Tanzanians with physical and mental handicaps a chance to express themselves and develop new skills, it is now a wonderful example of artistic creativity, where they create beautiful works of art out of recycled materials. Their metal crafts in particular are internationally renowned for their inspiration and innovative design.
Tanzania is best known for its beaches, and the best one in Dar es Salaam is the beautiful Kigamboni or South Beach. A five-minute ferry crossing will take you over to the beaches, but be aware that there is a charge to access many of them.
