Transportation and parking
The sheer size of the airport is almost overwhelming, but direct transport to the main passenger terminal is provided by the MARTA metro service, which has a station inside the main building between the north and south terminals. Door-to-door shuttles are provided by most hotels, and buses also run from the centre of Atlanta a few miles away, as well as from other U.S. cities. Taxis are plentiful, and the journey time from downtown Atlanta to the airport is between 20-30 minutes, depending on traffic conditions. Covered short-term parking is located next to the terminals, with economy and long-stay parking also conveniently close by, served by frequent and free shuttles.
At the airport
Customers flying from Atlanta with Qatar Airways depart from concourse E or F, depending on the flight. First class and Business class lounges are available. Be aware that as with all U.S. airports, security is exceptionally tight. Allow approximately two hours before your flight is due to depart to check-in and clear customs and security checks.

The sheer size and non-stop energy of Mumbai, India’s largest city, can come as an initial shock to visitors, but as you adjust to the frenetic pace of life in this extraordinary location you begin to appreciate its charms. Formerly known as Bombay, Mumbai is the powerhouse of India, and is full of interest for explorers.
There is so much to see and do in Mumbai that you may have to come back again and again to experience everything the city has to offer. Flights to Mumbai with Qatar Airways are a great way to begin your Indian odyssey in one of the world’s most vibrant destinations.
The majority of tourist attractions in Mumbai are focused in South Mumbai. Here you’ll find the magnificent colonial construction of Fort St. George, quite literally a city within a city.
Clustered around the wide boulevards of this section of the city you will also find the iconic Gateway of India, the gloriously over-the-top Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (Victoria Terminus) building, the Municipal Corporation and Police Headquarters and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Vastu Sanghralaya (the Prince Of Wales museum).
If you prefer to stroll around museums and galleries then Mumbai won’t disappoint. Head for the National Gallery of Modern Art, or discover India’s up and coming artists at the Nehru Centre Art Gallery at Worli.
Within the same complex as the art gallery is the Nehru Science Centre, which showcases India’s rapid scientific and technological advancements.
If you need a respite from the relentless energy and pace of Mumbai then head to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park or the "Hanging Gardens" on Malabar Hill.
