Qatar’s replacement airport (formerly New Doha International Airport) sets new global standards in operational efficiency, passenger convenience and service. All other airlines will continue to fly to and from the existing Doha International Airport until 27 May 2014, when Hamad International Airport will become fully operational.

In 2004, architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects and interior designers at global design studio HOK were brought in to devise a 600,000 sq m transport hub to replace the outdated Doha International Airport which was struggling to meet the demands of increased passenger numbers.

The new facility will be capable of handling 28 million passengers per annum when fully operational and virtually doubles the size of Doha International Airport. The hub includes two of the longest runways in the world, a 2,100 sq m public mosque, 28,000 sq m retail gallery, two 100-key hotels, a health spa, a 3,431-car parking garage, and numerous support and administration
