Flying from Riyadh

Dominated, not by its terminals but by the magnificent mosque that lies at the very heart of the complex, Riyadh’s King Khalid International Airport is a rapidly expanding air transport hub that is becoming increasingly important to the region.

 

Qatar Airways flights from Riyadh connect this busy business hub to Doha with regular daily flights. The airport itself is modern with interesting architectural focal points that draw on traditional Islamic design.

Parking and transportation


The airport’s parking facilities are excellent, and situated very close to the main terminals. Two very large multi-storey garages are located directly in front of the passenger terminals, on either side of the mosque. With a capacity to hold up to 11,600 vehicles, there is plenty of space in both long and short-term parking areas.

 

The car parks are connected to the terminals and the mosque by pedestrian walkways under the arrivals level roadway. While there is no public transport to the airport, there are shuttle services from some of the more popular hotels, and a fleet of taxis transport passengers to, and from, the airport. Please note that women are not allowed to drive on public roads in Saudi Arabia.

Arriving in Riyadh


Qatar Airways flights from Riyadh depart from Terminal 1. Moving walkways connect the main terminals (including Terminal 1) and are located in the three link buildings between the terminals.

 

Airbridges connect passengers to their flights from the departures area, removing the need for bus journeys out to the aircraft.

Facilities and amenities


The focus of the airport is the main mosque, a beautiful building that can house up to 5,000 worshippers inside and a further 5,000 in the plaza outside. Within Terminal 1, there are a range of retail outlets selling luxury goods, travel essentials, books and magazines.

 

Other facilities include a bank, ATM machines, and a range of cafés and restaurants serving quality international cuisine, snacks and beverages.

Arriving in Washington D.C.

The home of the President of the United States, Congress, the White House and a host of other iconic monuments, attractions and sights, Washington D.C. is the very heart of the U.S. Fly to Washington D.C. with Qatar Airways and you can start discovering this fabulous capital city for yourself.

From the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument, a trip to Washington D.C. is bound to get your camera snapping and your passion for exploration flowing. It’s also home to countless museums and galleries, making your visit one to remember.

Tourist attractions


Washington D.C. gathers some of its best attractions in one place, so the National Mall is probably one of the best ways to see Washington’s monuments.

 

The mall is full of museums and exhibits, with the Lincoln Memorial on one end and Capitol Hill on the other, and encompasses famous monuments, such as the World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

 

If you walk south of the mall, you can also find the Tidal Basin, popular during the annual Cherry Blossom Festival each spring. Tours of the White House are incredibly popular but must be booked well in advance.

Washington D.C. is also home to dozens of museums. The Popular Smithsonian museums include the National Museums of National History, National Portrait Gallery, and the National Air and Space Museum. The Spy Museum is perfect for families with children, who will love all the gadgets.

Travel considerations


Flights to Washington D.C. with Qatar Airways land at Washington Dulles 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.
