Flying from Skopje, Macedonia
Mountainous, wild and breathtakingly beautiful, Macedonia is one of eastern Europe’s best-kept secrets. Passengers flying from Skopje with Qatar Airways will find its international airport to be well run and efficient, with attentive staff providing a warm welcome. Named after Alexander the Great, the airport is one of two serving the country and is approximately 18 kilometres southeast of the capital.
Transportation and parking
A bus service conveniently links the city to the airport, making this an adequate transport option if you don’t have a large amount of luggage. However, if you do have excess luggage or are travelling with children, then the best choice is to pre-book a taxi.
Door-to-door transfers and shuttles are also available, and can be booked through your hotel concierge or reception desk. There is space for 1,200 vehicles in both short and long-term parking areas.
At the airport
Passengers flying from Skopje with Qatar Airways depart from the main terminal’s Departures hall. A VIP lounge is available for First and Business Class passengers.

Allow approximately two hours before your flight is due to depart to check in.
Facilities and amenities
Skopje International Airport has a diverse selection of restaurants serving meals, snacks and beverages. A business lounge offers quiet workspaces for business travellers, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the airport. A Bureau de Change offers currency exchange services, and there are several ATMs.
A small mall of retail outlets provides the usual travel essentials, as well as some luxury goods and Duty Free products for those last-minute gift purchases. Assistance is available upon request for disabled passengers.
Arriving in Narita, Tokyo
While most people will constrain their visit to Narita purely to travel to and from the airport on the way to nearby Tokyo, the town itself does have plenty to offer visitors who are willing to stop and look around. Book a flight to Narita with Qatar Airways and you could discover this interesting little destination for yourself, before you head to the bright lights of Tokyo.
Charming and with plenty of traditional Japanese character, Narita is a relatively tranquil location that gives visitors a taste of the real Japan. The people are friendly and welcoming, and are happy to show tourists willing to interrupt their journey to the capital around their little town. Nearby attractions make this off-the-beaten-track location well worth exploring.
The town is known for its ancient buildings, and one of the best is the Naritasan Shinshō-ji Temple, the site of which dates back to the 10th century. Classical pagodas and tranquil gardens are complemented by a European style garden too, making it an interesting fusion of two distinctly different cultures.
To really understand a little more about Japanese culture, take a trip to Boso No Mura, a living museum dedicated to the culture of the Japanese people. It includes a reconstructed traditional Japanese street, burial mound and a samurai residence. The centre hosts festivals and events celebrating the native culture of Japan’s islands too.
The Museum of Aeronautical Science is about 15 minutes by bus from the airport, while at the northern end of the runway you’ll find a surprisingly tranquil spot, Sakura-no-Yama Hill. This is a great spot to watch the aeroplanes take off and land, and during the spring the cherry trees turn this peaceful little park into a riot of colour.
Flights to Narita with Qatar Airways land at Narita Airport, Japan’s largest international air transport hub. 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 Narita please check the visa and passport requirements.
