Flying from Shanghai

Shanghai Pudong International Airport is one of two airports serving the huge metropolis of Shanghai, and one of the busiest international airports in Asia. 

Passengers flying from Shanghai with Qatar Airways will find this to be a modern, efficient and very well organised departure point. 

Courteous staff are only too happy to do everything possible to make the start of your journey a pleasant one, and the excellent modern facilities and amenities, and easy access from Shanghai itself make this airport an excellent choice for destinations all over the world.

Transportation and parking

The airport is well served by rail, bus and taxi options, and getting from the city centre to the airport is quick and easy. The Maglev Train is the fastest magnetic levitation train in the world, and connects the airport with metro line 2 at Longyang Station, taking just 8 minutes from point to point. Trains run every 15 minutes from 7am to 9pm. 

The station is situated next to the airport and is connected to the terminal by a bridge. Airport bus 1 connects the airport with Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, while other routes run every few minutes to various locations in Shanghai including the Galaxy Hotel and Shanghai South railway station. 

Taxis are plentiful but as many drivers only speak Chinese it is best to ask your hotel concierge to book a taxi on your behalf. 

Parking consists of a three-floor multi-storey car park with space for over 3,000 vehicles, and a surface car park for short and long-term parking in front of the terminal buildings.

Arriving in Shanghai

Passengers flying from Shanghai with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal 2. Check in and security checks are rapid, but it is still wise to allow between one to two hours before your flight is due to board to clear the strict security and customs checks. 

It is vital that all paperwork is in order as any issues could delay you considerably.

Facilities and amenities

Facilities are modern, with plenty of retail and food and drink vendors providing an excellent selection of goods and snacks. Food and retail outlets are primarily on the third floor of the terminal. 

The lounge areas are spacious and comfortable, and free Wi-Fi is available, along with mobile phone charging stations. 

There are several banks, a Bureau de Change and ATMs throughout the terminals, and there is a business centre in the Arrivals terminal, as well as a VIP room.

Arriving in Athens

The cradle of modern civilisation, the birthplace of democracy – Athens has to be one of the most influential and iconic destinations in the world. Book a flight to Athens with Qatar Airways and you’ll quickly discover why this extraordinary city is so important not just to the history of Europe, but to its future as well.

Filled with incredible historical sites, Athens is also a modern, working city that is home to nearly four million people.

 

But it’s the history that most visitors come to experience, and immersing yourself in the relics of the past is a great way to understand so much more about our own modern civilisation, as well as Greece’s incredible past.

Tourist Attractions


Athens packs in the attractions, and at the top of most visitors’ lists has to be the Acropolis, a World Heritage site and standing proud above the city itself. For the best overall view of Athens, especially at sunset, head to Lykavittos Hill.

 

It’s a hot, dusty climb, but on a clear day you can see beyond the port of Piraeus and out to the islands of Aegina and the Peloponnese.

Back in the city, the Ancient Agora is home to some of the best-preserved temples and monuments from the Bronze Age, and the magnificent Temple of Zeus with its towering columns.

Modern Athens has plenty to offer as well, with dozens of museums and galleries to explore. The best way to see Athens is to take an open-top tour of the city by bus.


Travel Considerations


Flights to Athens with Qatar Airways land at Athens Eleftherios Venizelos 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 Athens please check the visa and passport requirements.
