It is Texas' second largest air facility, after Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, and offers flights with a number of carriers, including Qatar Airways, to Canada, Central and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Modern and well-organized, the airport is one of the easiest to navigate your way around, thanks to friendly and helpful staff.

The airport has over 25,000 parking spaces as well as the ecopark, which provides economy parking at the corner of Greens Road and John F. Kennedy Blvd. A free shuttle service connects to the terminals.

Arriving in Lahore
Pakistan’s second largest city and awash with golden-domed mosques, beautiful traditional buildings and stunning landmarks, Lahore is considered to be the country’s cultural capital. This energetic and vibrant city also offers visitors excellent retail and culinary experiences, as well as one of the warmest welcomes you’ll receive anywhere in the world.
Book a flight to Lahore with Qatar Airways and experience the true warmth and vibrancy of Pakistan. From the magnificent Elephant Gate that sits at the entrance of its walled city, to the peace and tranquility of the Hiran Minar park, Lahore is an eclectic, eccentric city that will draw you back time and again.
Lahore is a huge city, and the sheer number of attractions can be mind-boggling to begin with. A good place to start is the Walled City, one of the oldest in the world. Every gate around the huge walls is different and worth a visit in its own right, but the best of the ‘Gates of the Inner City’ is The Raushnai Gate (the ‘Gate of Light’) that sits between the royal mosque and the citadels.
Within the Walled City you’ll also find Lahore Fort, built by the moguls and even today still an impressive and imposing structure. If you ask the guide they may take you down for a private tour of the underground summer rooms.
The Badshahi Mosque was for many years the largest mosque in the world and today is still a dominant feature of the Lahore skyline. In front of the mosque is a pretty park with Pakistan’s very own answer to the Eiffel Tower, the Minar-e-Pakistan.
Flights to Lahore with Qatar Airways land at Allama Iqbal 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 Lahore please check the visa and passport requirements.
