Flying from Venice

A remarkable destination deserves a remarkable airport, and Venice Marco Polo Airport doesn’t disappoint. Elegant, well designed and efficient, it makes the ideal starting point for your journey. Staff are helpful and friendly, and focused on delivering an outstanding passenger experience from the moment you walk through the doors to the moment you board your flight. 

Passengers flying from Venice with Qatar Airways will find that the facilities are good, and check-in procedures are well organised and smooth, making your departure pleasant. 

Transportation and parking

Transport to and from Venice Marco Polo Airport can be either through the usual ways – rail, bus and taxi – or by the more scenic method of water taxi. 

Venice-Mestre railway station is connected to the airport by the ATVO Fly Bus, while plenty of other buses ferry passengers from Venice and the surrounding area quickly and efficiently. 

Taxis run to and from the city and shared taxis are available if you are travelling with companions or work colleagues, for example. The water taxis are very popular and offer you a lasting memory of this remarkable city as you travel towards the airport. Journey time is around 75 minutes. 

Parking at the airport is quite good, with long-term and open-air car parks next to the old terminal. There are two more large open-air long-term car parks a short distance from the terminal, and a short-term car park is located directly opposite the airport terminal. Parking can be booked in advance.

Arriving in Venice

Passengers flying from Venice with Qatar Airways depart from the 2nd floor Departures area in the main terminal. There are a total of 70 check-in desks and two lounges for passengers. 

As with all European airports, security is tight so allow at least an hour and a half to two hours to check in and clear customs and security checks.

Facilities and amenities

Facilities are good at the airport. Wi-Fi is available for a fee, and there are also fixed internet points throughout the terminal. ATMs and Bureau de Change facilities are plentiful, while an on-site post office also provides currency exchange and some limited business facilities such as faxing. 

Food and drink, as you would expect in Italy, is very good and ranges from casual coffee and beverage stalls through to more formal, restaurant-style meals. 

Shopping is also good – look out in particular for Venetian glass and leather goods. 

Arriving in Shanghai

There’s one word that describes Shanghai – huge. Home to more than 23million people, this vast city is the largest in mainland China and one of the world’s most prosperous metropolitan areas, making it a magnet for business travellers, investors and entrepreneurs. The sheer scale of Shanghai can leave you breathless, but if you plan your journey carefully before you arrive you will be able to see some of the most incredible juxtapositions between ancient and modern culture anywhere in the world.

Book a flight to Shanghai with Qatar Airways and you’ll receive the warmest of welcomes from people who embrace visitors from all over the world (Shanghai is home to more than 9 million immigrants).

Tourist attractions

Shanghai is split into two districts by the Huangpu River - Puxi and Pudong. Puxi is the older of the two, with the majority of modern Shanghai (including the business district) housed in Pudong. To escape the frenetic pace of life of the city head for the beautifully manicured Yuyuan Gardens, which is dotted with classical architecture (although you may have to struggle through the street vendors at the gates). The Bund and the French Concession transports you back to 1920s Shanghai, while modern architecture is well represented in and around Pudong's Lujiazui District.

One of the more unusual attractions is Zhujiajiao Water Town, a classic ‘water village’ that’s over 400 years old and with a signature five-arch bridge spanning the Cao Gang River. It’s a maze of paths and bridges, and is also home to two impressive temples.

Other temples throughout the city that are well worth adding to your itinerary include the Jade Buddha Temple, Jing'an Temple, Chenghuang and Longhua Temple. To catch a truly breathtaking panoramic view of the entire city head up to the observation point on the Oriental Pearl Tower. To learn more about the history and culture of Shanghai dating back to the Bronze Age, pay a visit to the well-run Shanghai Museum.

Travel Considerations

Flights to Shanghai with Qatar Airways land at Shanghai Pudong 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 Shanghai please check the visa and passport requirements.
