Doha International (DOH) is the country’s main airport. It is located 5 Km to the south of the city centre. Qatar Airways is the country’s national airline, and flies to over 100 destinations around the world. Twenty-two other international and regional airlines use the airport, which has been established as a major regional hub and so has excellent connections.

  • For a full list of the airline’s destinations and services, see the Qatar Airways website

Flight departure and arrival information is available online on the Doha International website. An SMS text service is also available to enable flight time information to be sent to mobile phones. Texting a flight number in the message and sending it to 92636 prompts a return message containing the latest flight information.

New Doha International Airport

A new airport, New Doha International Airport, located 4 Km to the east of the present airport, is under construction. The first phase is scheduled to open in 2012, with final completion set for some time after 2015. The New Doha International Airport will eventually replace Doha International.
