Arriving in Goa
Beloved destination of travellers from the west since the 1960s, Goa is one of the most relaxing and laid-back locations in the world. Famous for its beaches and a tropical lifestyle, it’s a warm, welcoming place that is continuing to grow into an internationally important tourist spot.
A unique blend of Indian and Portuguese culture gives it an eclectic feel unlike any other part of India. The best time to book a flight to Goa with Qatar Airways is between November and February, when the climate is mild. For a truly relaxing holiday that allows you to unwind and leave the pressures of modern life behind you, Goa is the perfect destination.
Without doubt the main attraction in Goa are its beaches. Soft sand, warm water that’s perfect for snorkelling and diving and a beach culture that encourages a more laid-back lifestyle attract visitors from all over the world. But Goa has plenty of other attractions, including a plethora of art galleries and museums charting the colonial history of the region, its culture and both traditional and modern art.
Across Goa there are several Butterfly Conservatories (at Rajnagar, Pisgal, Priol and Ponda), which are an enchanting way to spend a day. If you time your visit for the end of January, head to the international music festival at Elliot Grounds, Baga Bridge for two days of top quality acts.
Originally, Goa was known for its spice plantations, and a great way of discovering more about this fascinating trade is to take a spice tour at the Dudhsagar Plantation in Karmane.
Flights to Goa with Qatar Airways land at Goa 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 Goa please check the visa and passport requirements.
Flying from Moscow
Moscow is served by three large airports, and passengers flying from Moscow with Qatar Airways will depart from the largest airport in the country, Domodedovo International Airport. This huge air hub handles approximately 30 million passengers a year, and is an efficient and well-run airport.
Current redevelopment of the airport will mean that once completed the entire airport will operate from a single, giant terminal with extremely modern systems including X-ray and enhanced security systems.
The current airport offers a good selection of facilities as well as a very efficient service for passengers travelling to destinations across the globe.
Transportation and parking
The city’s Paveletsky Station is connected to the airport via the high-speed, non-stop Aeroexpress train. The journey time from the centre of Moscow to the airport using Aeroexpress is approximately 50 minutes and is the easiest way to travel from the centre of Moscow.
A 24-hour minibus shuttle service operates between the Domodedovskaya underground station and the airport and takes approximately 15 minutes, while taxis are plentiful and take around 90 minutes from the centre of the city.
It is strongly advised, though, to ensure that you use official taxis, and travellers should ask their hotel concierge to arrange the pick up for them. Spaces for more than 5,000 cars are available for both short and long-term parking, and a VIP parking area is located next to the international terminal.
Arriving at Domodedovo International Airport
Passengers flying from Moscow with Qatar Airways depart from Concourse A, which is part of the main terminal and is specifically for international flights.
The terminal building itself is vast, so utilise the information boards to see which gate your flight is departing from.
Facilities and amenities
Meeting rooms are available for business travellers, while public lounges are open to all passengers. Wi-Fi is available for a fee and there are free Internet kiosks throughout the terminal, as well as mobile phone charging points.
A children’s area keeps young travellers entertained, and there are also a surprising number of retail outlets selling very good quality goods and accessories. Duty Free outlets are available once you have cleared customs, and the food hall offers a wide selection of light snacks and more substantial meals.
