Hyderabad is an ancient city with numerous picturesque historic buildings, from the Mughal era down to the British Raj. However, it is also a thriving modern metropolis, a centre for India’s booming technology industries, and has a reputation for fine dining and high fashion. Enjoy shopping in some of the subcontinent’s most futuristic malls, or visit attractions such as Golconda Fort, which was once a diamond-trading centre. The 16th century Charminar Mosque is an especially beautiful must-see building.
Logan International Airport in Boston is the largest airport in New Hampshire and serves the north east of the United States, including the Boston metropolitan area.
It is both a U.S. and international transport hub, connecting to destinations across the United States and beyond. The emphasis is on the passenger experience, and customers flying from Boston with Qatar Airways will find this to be a quietly efficient and welcoming airport, making it a pleasant place to start any journey.
Transportation and parking
Logan International Airport is well served by public transport, and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority runs a metro service right into the heart of the airport.
Buses also run by the MBTA and the Silverline service run into the centre of Boston, with a journey time of between 20-30 minutes, depending on the time of day and traffic conditions. The Boston Water Taxi runs to and from Logan Dock, and is a pleasant alternative to overland transport. Taxis are easily arranged by your hotel concierge and a limousine service can also be pre-booked.
At the airport
Customers flying from Boston with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal E, also known as the John A. Volpe International Terminal. Departures leave from the third level, while level 2 is for passport control.
Several lounges are available for customers, including First class and Business class executive lounge areas. As with all U.S. airports, security is incredibly tight, so allow extra time to check-in and clear security and customs checks.
Facilities and amenities
Logan International Airport has excellent facilities, and thanks to recent upgrades these are now regarded as some of the best in the U.S. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport, with good, stable connectivity.
Conference facilities are provided by the on-site hotels, and the Boston Convention Center is just 5km from the airport. Restaurants and cafés provide an excellent selection of food and beverage, including international cuisine, on-the-go snacks as well as drinks and fast food.
Shopping and retail is good, with Duty Free available and a selection of outlets selling fashion, jewellery and luxury goods. Other amenities include baby-changing facilities, a public art space and kids’ play areas in some terminals.
An eclectic blend of ancient and ultra-modern (Hyderabad is the Indian home of IT giants Google and Microsoft), this bustling city is a magnet for business travellers, and tourists who are looking for a destination that still retains its own individuality rather than a homogeny of predictable resorts and attractions. The result is a destination full of interest and energy.
Book a flight to Hyderabad with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a destination that hasn’t been over-sanitised but still holds onto that authentic Indian feel. It’s hot, busy, and the scent of spices is heavy in the air, making it a truly memorable and genuinely Indian experience.
Many of the sites and attractions are clustered into the Old City, the historical quarter of Hyderabad. Here you’ll find the stunning Charminar (literally ‘Four Minarets’), and the view of the city from the 48metre-high towers is breathtaking.
The Chowmahalla Palace at Khilwat is well worth a visit, while the Qutb Shahi Tombs have the iconic domed design that is instantly recognisable as a classic Indian architectural signature.
Golconda Fort is magnificent, and puts on a show-stopping light and sound display that tells the story of Golkonda against the dramatic backdrop of the fort itself. After a visit it’s well worth exploring the labyrinth of streets that wind their way around the base of the fort for some locally-made souvenirs and trinkets.
To find out why so many high-tech companies are making Hyderabad their home, head to the B.M. Birla Planetarium and Science & Technological Museum, an interesting and eclectic museum.
