Singapore is a teardrop-shaped island that has a rich history bound up in the trade of spices and silk from the East to the West. A trading hub for thousands of years, today it is one of the fastest-growing economies in the Pacific, and is still recognised as a major trading centre.
Surrounded by dramatic sand dunes and the vast open spaces of the Arabian Desert, Dammam Airport (known as King Fahd International Airport) is truly vast with six levels housing a huge selection of facilities, check-in desks, lounges and porter services.
Transportation and parking
The airport has a multi-storey car park attached to it. On the roof of this car park, you can find a mosque, which can be accessed from the passenger terminal through two enclosed, air-conditioned bridges and an additional open bridge.
The airport is around 50 kilometres from Dammam city centre, but is well served by frequent bus links and taxis. Carrier SAPTCO runs shuttle buses between the airport and the bus station every hour. The trip takes around 45 minutes. Taxis are available and are located in the rank outside the main entrance. A limousine service is also available.
Arriving at King Fahd International Airport
There is only one terminal at the airport, but it is vast. Departure check-in is located on Level 6, while boarding gates are on Level 4.
Facilities and amenities
King Fahd International Airport was the first in Saudi Arabia to open duty-free shops within its airport. There is a separate area dedicated to shops selling goods that passengers might find useful during their travels, and in the arrivals area you will also find plenty of cafés, restaurants and banks.
ATMs and currency exchange points are available in the departure and arrival areas. For a light meal with a view, head to the fourth floor (above check-in), where you'll find an observation deck and a café serving a buffet selection of food.
Fly to Singapore with Qatar Airways and you’ll arrive in a unique destination that has its own personality. This city state is easily accessible, thanks to its continuing importance as a trading point between east and west.
Colonial influences can still be seen in its architecture and customs, but today Singapore is a true melting pot of cultures.
Singapore is looking to the future too, and is becoming a major location for high-tech industries and innovation. Yet, the city welcomes leisure tourists with open arms, and a flight to Singapore with Qatar Airways is a great way to begin your Far East odyssey.
Singapore’s beaches are a little slice of paradise, especially those on the tranquil Sentosa Island. If you prefer exploring colonial architecture, then head to the Bras Basah area east of Orchard and north of the Singapore River, to find a cluster of historical buildings and museums.
Perhaps the city’s most famous building is the Raffles Hotel (which has appeared in plenty of films), while the National Museum of Singapore offers a more in-depth exploration of the history and culture of the region.
Singapore’s wildlife is unique and a big draw for explorers and visitors. To get a real feel for the flora and fauna of the region visit the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. The Jurong Bird Park and Singapore Zoo should also be on your list if you’re an animal lover.
Flights to Singapore with Qatar Airways arrive at Changi 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.
