The USA’s capital and one of the most iconic cities in the world, Washington D.C. is also an incredibly busy international air hub. Located approximately 26 miles west of the city, the airport’s main terminal is architecturally striking. A huge curved roof arches gracefully into the air. Be warned though, this is a very big airport so you may need a little extra time to orientate yourself.
Transportation and parking
The airport is so large that a train takes passengers from the main building to the concourses. Valet parking (for up to 45 days) is available close to the main terminal, while a selection of other short and long-term parking options are located in garages 1 and 2, with up to 8,325 covered spaces available.
A large economy parking area is located near Route 28 airport exits, providing more than 12,000 spaces. A regular shuttle service runs from the economy parking areas to the main terminal.
A selection of vans, taxis and buses take passengers from Washington D.C. to and from the airport, and a limousine service are also available.
Arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport
Passengers on flights from Washington D.C. with Qatar Airways will need to go to Departure Area 2 to find the Qatar Airways check-in desk.
Once you have passed through security you will need to board an Aero Train, which will take you to the gates on the four main concourses. Gates H and Z are connected to the main terminal building, so there is no need to use the Aero Train to access these gates.
The security checkpoints are located on the mezzanine level.
Facilities and amenities
Dulles International Airport is vast, and offers passengers a wide selection of amenities and facilities. Car rental, hotel information and even a ‘pet relief’ area is located on the ground floor.
On the departures level you will find gift shops and cafés serving everything from snacks to full restaurant-standard meals.
Originally known as the ‘Garden City of India’ Bangalore is now a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that is regarded as one of the best places to live in India. Its energy and almost frenetic pace is offset with some beautifully tranquil gardens and parks.
If you book a flight to Bangalore with Qatar Airways for business or pleasure you’ll discover a fascinating city that offers everyone a warm and typically Indian welcome.
Bangalore is the epicentre of India’s burgeoning IT industry, but away from the brand new steel and glass buildings are a host of older, more sedate locations that charm all who visit them. This is old Bangalore, and it is well worth seeking out for a glimpse of the city’s complex past.
The best way to see tourist attractions in Bangalore is to take a guided tour, as this will not only give you a more rounded idea of the history of each building, but will also work out considerably cheaper than paying entrance fees at each attraction.
Bangalore Palace was constructed by the Maharajahs of Mysore, and is filled with exotic artworks, beautiful carving and ornate architectural details. Tipu Sultan's Palace, which dates from around 1790, is a little unusual in that it is constructed mainly from wood with beautifully embellished arches, columns and balconies.
The city is full of temples, many of which have giant statues dominating the structures. They are well worth visiting for the artistic value of the carvings, paintings and details. And if you want to get away from the heat and noise of the city for a while, head to the peace and tranquility of Ulsoor Lake and Sankey Tank.
