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 Kilimanjaro

Africa’s highest peak and (currently) dormant volcano Kilimanjaro has to be one of the most iconic landmarks of this remarkable continent. Towering above the Zimbabwean plains, it is a challenging climb, but well worth the effort if you’re able to reach the summit.

Book a flight to Kilimanjaro with Qatar Airways and you can start your African adventure in real style. Beyond the mountain there is a world of fabulous wildlife to discover, including the ‘Big Five’ – the African lion, elephant, Cape
buffalo, African leopard, and White/Black rhinoceros.


A trip of a lifetime, visiting Kilimanjaro gives you the chance to see these magnificent creatures in their native habitat.

Tourist attractions

The most obvious attraction has to be the mountain itself. It stands 5,895 metres (19,340 feet) above sea level, and is Africa's highest peak and the world's highest free-standing mountain. However, thanks to its relatively gentle incline compared to other mountains, reaching the summit can be achieved by visitors with a reasonable level of fitness.


Guides take adventurous travellers to the top of this ancient volcano, where the view of the African plains below is truly breathtaking.

Kilimanjaro has a number of natural waterfalls to see such as Materuni waterfalls and Kinukamori waterfalls. These are rich habitats for wildlife too, making them popular with visitors.

At the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro there are volcanic lakes including Lake Chala, a tranquil location that has its own unique eco-system. Tours to discover the culture of the local Chagga tribe give visitors a chance to meet a tribe that has made Mount Kilimanjaro their home for thousands of years. Safari trips out to the plains give travellers the chance to see larger wildlife in the protected habitat of Kilimanjaro National Park.
