The airport remains the prime facility serving the entire country, as it is the only commercial international airport.

Hamad International Airport will replace Doha International Airport, with the operations shifting on a stage by stage process till the completion of the new airport’s construction. The construction of the final phase is slated to be completed by 2020, while its current specifications will accommodate 28 million passengers; a capacity which is more than double the capacity of its predecessor accommodating 12 million passengers per year.
