The best airport in the world. To decree it was also Skytrax, which in the recent ranking of 2021 awarded it the first place in its special ranking.
Doha Airport is a real city within a city, characterized by high quality standards, redefining the definition of an airport itself. It is a place that offers an experience like few others. Architectural masterpiece in which elegance and beauty blend perfectly.
A single huge terminal in which numerous areas converge. The services inside are “first in class”. Bars, duty-free, shopping areas, international restaurants suitable for all tastes, pockets and palates. The wifi line is available by accessing with your device, after registration, the “HIAQatar Complimentary WiFi” network.
This is also a child-friendly airport. And you cannot be otherwise. There are special areas for recreation, areas for changing, to heat food and bottles. Over 500 strollers can be used by anyone who needs them. Each area is perfectly indicated within Doha Airport.
This is also the home of Qatar Airways, one of the best airlines in the world for quality and services offered. The same that the airport is able to offer to its passengers.
From here pass about two areas per minute. Its western runway is among the longest in the world. More than 30 million passengers pass through its single and immense terminal every year. Numbers destined to increase after the summer of 2022, on the occasion of the Soccer World Cup.
