Check the price of flights to Kolkata further below and book Economy or Premium Class flights to Kolkata with Qatar Airways to visit India's second-biggest city. Scrape beneath the surface of the former capital of British India, and you'll find a dynamic, friendly city, home to colonial architecture, new suburbs, some of the best restaurants in the country and plenty of things to see in Kolkata.

Flying from Houston

Listed as one of the top 30 busiest airports in the world, the George Bush Intercontinental Airport serves Houston and the southeast area of Texas.

 

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.

Transportation and parking


Because the airport is situated some 26 miles from Houston, the best way to reach the airport is via taxi, limousine service or the regular bus services.

 

Catch the bus from the Downtown Transit Center station of the METRORail. Buses run every 30 minutes. An underground inter-terminal train outside of the sterile zone connects all five terminals, and a shuttle-bus service also runs from Terminal A to Terminals B and C.

 

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 at Houston


International flights including flights from Houston with Qatar Airways depart from Terminal D, also known as the Mickey Leland International Terminal. This state-of-the-art terminal is undergoing re-development to give it a fresh and airy feel.

 

Terminal D has 12 gates and several international lounges, including an exclusive lounge for the use of Qatar Airways passengers only.

Facilities and amenities


The Terminal D food court is located in the departures area and is home to a selection of eateries, serving snacks, quick meals and coffee.

 

Several exclusive outlets in Terminal D also sell locally-made Texan products and souvenirs, such as hats, boots and Western apparel. A wellness centre also offers massage and treatments.

 

Arriving in Kolkata

Formerly known as Calcutta, this huge city is the second largest in India and one of the country’s true commercial powerhouses. A juxtaposition of ultra-modern developments and traditional values, it’s a maelstrom of sounds, smells and sites that can be almost overwhelming to start with. But you’ll also find this to be an incredibly friendly city, and once you’ve adjusted to the frenetic pace of life here, truly inspiring too.

Book a flight to Kolkata with Qatar Airways and you’ll be immersed in a truly unique destination from the moment you step off the plane. There are moments of serenity to be discovered in its parks and gardens, before you’re off again, swept along on a tide of energy and enthusiasm.

Tourist attractions

Kolkata is a vast city, so it pays to plan your trip carefully so that you can see the best that each region has to offer. In central Kolkata your focal point is the magnificent open parkland known as Maidan, which offers a tranquil respite from the traffic and noise for a while. Close by you’ll find a clutch of attractions including the imposing citadel of Fort William (visits by prior arrangement only), and the city’s most famous landmark, the towering Victoria Monument, carved from white marble.

Head to northern Kolkata and you’ll discover the beautiful Nakhoda Mosque, the city’s largest and a truly stunning example of Islamic architecture and art. The Marble Palace, built in 1835, is a must see, set in a perfectly manicured acre of tropical gardens.

The south of the city is a little less congested and is known for its open spaces, including the park and boating lake of Rabindra Sarovar and the Royal Calcutta Golf Club, the second oldest golf club in the world. You’ll also find the wonderfully lively Big Bazaar, where you can buy just about anything you can imagine.

Travel considerations

Flights to Kolkata with Qatar Airways land at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose 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 Kolkata please check the visa and passport requirements.
