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 Perth
Book a flight to Perth with Qatar Airways and the first thing you’ll notice when you arrive is just how laid-back this beautiful city is. Energetic and vibrant and with a strong emphasis on culture and the arts, Perth is nevertheless a relaxed, easy-going city that welcomes visitors.
A fusion of traditional Victorian buildings and ultra-modern architecture gives Perth a very individualistic character. But its parks, beaches and open spaces are the real draw, giving it a spacious feel that offers little oases of calm in the heart of a busy city.
Modern Perth started as a British settlement in the early 19th century, and there is still plenty of evidence of the influence of the Victorians in the architecture, particularly in the Central Business District.
Look for Australia’s oldest mint, The Perth Mint, which is still producing coinage today. The Western Australian Museum charts the 45,000-year history of the indigenous Noongar people, while the Art Gallery of Western Australia recognises the ancient Aboriginal culture as well as more modern artists.
Other Perth highlights include a visit to the expansive Kings Park and Botanic Gardens, the Swan Bell Tower located on the banks of the Swan River, and Perth Zoo. The city’s beaches are also popular, with Cottlesloe Beach and Scarborough Beach particular favourites with the locals.
Qatar Airways flights to Perth arrive at Perth 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.
