      Enjoy a comfortable and relaxing flight from New York to Kochi with Qatar Airways with regular trips from John F. Kennedy airport. Sit back and relax in our spacious seats, while our attentive cabin crew provide you with award-winning services, delicious cuisine, and thousands of entertainment options. Arrive in India’s premier port feeling good and looking great.

       

      Very much an off-the-beaten-track destination, Kochi is a backpacker’s paradise. A trip to this coastal city in the Indian state of Kerala invokes images of the town’s past, when it was instrumental in the spice trade. Here, an amalgamation of Arabian, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese and British influences, make for a rich experience with plenty of things to do in Kochi.

      Check the price of flights to Kochi further below and book Economy or Premium Class flights to Kochi with Qatar Airways.

      Flying from New York

      The iconic JFK airport is representative of the city it serves – big, busy and vibrant. A total of eight terminals and all the major international carriers connect passengers all over the world.

       

      Packed with facilities and friendly staff, JFK is one of the world’s busiest air hubs. Because the airport is so busy, it is important to plan ahead and know which terminal your Qatar Airways flight leaves from.

      Transportation and car parking


      The easiest way to get to and from the airport is via the JFK AirTrain - a 24-hour service that connects all of the airport terminals with rail and metro stations.

       

      The New York City Airporter Bus runs every 20 minutes from Grand Central Terminal and the Port Authority Bus Terminal to the airport. Taxis are plentiful and a pre-booked limousine service is also available. Car parking for Terminal 8 is in the ‘Red’ Lot, although shuttles from other parking zones provide you with more options if the Red Lot is full.

      Arriving in New York


      Qatar Airways flights from New York leave from Terminal 8. The free AirTrain service connects the terminals, which is particularly useful if you are transferring from an internal or other international flight.

       

      If your flight leaves from a high-numbered gate, it is advisable to use the free motorized shuttle, due to the distance between the departure area and the gates. The Oasis Lounge (charges applicable) in Terminal 4 is open 24 hours a day and has extensive facilities including showers.

      Facilities and amenities


      While waiting for your Qatar Airways flight from New York, Terminal 8 offers extensive food and drink outlets serving snacks and fast food, light meals, coffee and refreshments.

       

      There is also a wide range of retail outlets selling everything from watches and sunglasses to a dedicated ‘Metropolitan Museum of Art’ shop. Facilities include baby-care areas, dry cleaning, a pet relief area and a Welcome Centre. Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport for a fee.

       

      Arriving in Kochi

      Think of Kochi and the iconic image that springs to mind are the unique ‘Chinese fishing nets’ that line the harbour. But this bustling city is much more than simply a fishing port, and is one of the main tourist destinations in India.

      Book a flight to Kochi with Qatar Airways and you’ll have the opportunity to explore this diverse city for yourself. A medieval city founded on the spice trade, modern Kochi is today a thriving commercial and technology centre too, representing India’s willingness to embrace and blend both its modern and traditional culture.

      Tourist attractions


      The Chinese fishing nets at Fort Kochi are a fabulous photo opportunity, particularly at sunset. But Kochi also has plenty of other attractions to entertain visitors. Everywhere you look you will see reminders of the city’s colonial past, including Princess Street, that is packed full of authentic European architecture.

      In Fort Kochi you will also find the world’s only international pepper exchange, proving just how important this spice was and still is to the city. The Dutch Palace in Palace Road is a relic of the Dutch East India Company’s influence on the region, and throughout the city you will see Dutch influences alongside the colonial splendour of some of the British Raj buildings.

      To find out more about the history of this eclectic city, visit the Hill Palace Museum, originally the Kochi Maharaja's palace and now the largest archaeological palace in South India. It includes the Cochin Royal Crown and Crown Jewels (be aware that security is understandably very tight around this section of the exhibition!). The palace/museum is surrounded by lush gardens patrolled by peacocks.

      Travel Considerations


      Flights to Kochi with Qatar Airways land at Cochin 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. Before you fly to Kochi please check the visa and passport requirements.
