Managed and operated by Qatar Airways, this state-of-the-art airport accommodates unrestricted operations for all commercial aircraft types, and is located just four kilometers away from the existing Doha International Airport.
Hamad International Airport offers an unrivalled experience for passengers, particularly those travelling on an Airbus A380 – of which Qatar Airways has 10 on order.
Among the primary benefits delivered, is the ability of First and Business Class passengers to board and disembark an A380 directly from their lounge area, expediting the process and making it easier for those with connecting flights. This capability is exclusive to the A380.
Hamad International Airport currently has 41 contact gates, six of which will cater specifically to the double-deck A380.
In addition, more than 40,000 square metres of the facility’s total space are dedicated to retail and food/beverage facilities – with other features including a new royal terminal complex for VIP flights, along with an airport hotel with 200 rooms in the North and South nodes for the convenience of transfer passengers.
Hamad International Airport also has the world’s largest maintenance hangar, which can accommodate two A380s simultaneously.
