When you travel from Bangkok to Rome with Qatar Airways you can expect the best luxury experience including delicious in-flight cuisine, the latest movies and entertainment, and a range of premium services. Sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere of refined elegance on board one of our state-of-the-art luxury aircraft, and arrive in the fascinating city of Rome ready to discover its amazing culture and historical landmarks.
The millennia old city of Rome is steeped in history and high culture. From the monuments of the Roman Empire to Vatican City, this fascinating destination is filled with amazing things to discover. Whilst Rome is certainly characterised by its rich heritage, as the vibrant capital of Italy it is also a thoroughly modern destination with designer shopping outlets, luxury hotels and world class restaurants. When visiting Rome don’t forget to drop a coin into the Trevi Fountain, which will guarantee your return to this amazing city.
The remarkable curved architecture and stunning design concept of the ultra-modern Bangkok Airport makes it a pleasure to fly from, and one of the most memorable airports in the world.
From its vaulted ceiling to its elegant lounges, extensive facilities and excellent transport connections, Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport is the departure point for Qatar Airways flights from Bangkok.
Transportation and parking
Transport to and from the airport is extensive, making it easy to get around. Four bus lines, A, B, C and D, cover the whole of the complex and provide regular connections from the transport centre to the passenger terminals, VIP lounge and hotels.
Taxis arrive at the main departures point, and the airport has an extensive limousine service, offering six different types of limousines and a total of 380 cars available around the clock. For details, contact the Limousine counter Level 2, Baggage Claim Hall or Arrival Hall.
Between the airport’s official Novotel hotel and the terminal building are two 5-storey car park buildings that can hold up to 5,000 cars on short and long-stay parking.
Arriving at Suvarnabhumi International Airport
Travellers boarding Qatar Airways flights will need to go to the departures area on Level 4 within the main terminal. The airport is very large, so take advantage of the porter service if you have a lot of luggage. Drop-off points for taxis and cars are located outside the main entrance.
Facilities and amenities
The ultra-modern facilities at the airport make it easy to navigate, despite its size. There are 130 passport control checkpoints for arrivals, and 72 for departures, with 26 customs control checkpoints for arrivals, and eight for departures.
There are about 50 food and drink outlets throughout the terminal. Duty-free shopping is also available in what is practically a mall full of outlets, from high-end luxury goods and perfumes, to confectionery and books.
If you want to experience everything that Rome has to offer but want a little bit of individuality thrown into the mix, book a flight to Fiumicino with Qatar Airways and discover an often-overlooked part of this beautiful region. Originally a simple fishing village just a few miles from the historic capital, Fiumicino is today an attractive destination loved by locals and travellers in the know.
A much more tranquil and sedate pace of life lulls you into a relaxed state of mind, and if you want the vibrancy and energy of Rome then it’s only a short drive away. But there is plenty in this pretty location to keep you interested and amused.
The biggest attraction in the area is the ancient Roman settlement of Ostia Antica, the historic ancestor of the modern town. This bay area at the mouth of the Tiger river is picturesque and a haven for wildlife, making it a serene change from the usual tourist destinations.
One of the more unusual attractions is a small mud volcano that popped into existence on the Coccia di Morto roundabout in 2013! Although currently dormant, local geologists (and road cleaners) are keeping a careful eye on it just in case it becomes active again.
Shopping in Fiumicino is surprisingly good, and if you don’t want to fight through the crowds in nearby Rome then there is plenty to buy in the new Malo Moda mall or the smaller boutiques in the town itself. The main ingredient to any trip to Fiumicino is relaxation – a visit to this location is a welcome change from the frenetic pace of life in nearby Rome.
Flights to Fiumicino with Qatar Airways land at Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino 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 Fiumicino please check the visa and passport requirements.
