How to get there
The airport is clearly signposted from central Qatar. Follow Al Corniche Street east then turn left on to Ras Abu Abboud Street. After about 5km (3 miles) turn left at the roundabout on to the F Ring Road, which leads directly to the terminal entrance.
Regular Mowasalat bus services 109 and 747 Express (tel: 4458 8888; www.mowasalat.com) operate from outside the terminal into the city. Payment is via an electronic ‘Karwa’ Smartcard which can be purchased from the driver. The ‘Limited’ version of the card is valid for two journeys and costs QAR10, while the ‘Unlimited’ card costs QAR20 and is valid for unlimited trips around the city in a 24-hour period. Journey time on the 747 Express into the city centre is 20-25 minutes.
Cabs (also operated by the state-owned Mowasalat) are readily available from the Taxi Pavilion immediately outside Arrivals. All taxis are metered and have a starting fare of QAR25. The journey time into the city centre is 20 minutes or less. Note that only Qatari Riyals in cash are accepted as payment. The same company also offers a limousine service.
Short-term car parking is available on either side of the passenger terminal, the first 30 minutes of which are free of charge.
