Hamad International Airport (IATA Code: DOH) is the main airport of Doha and the busiest in Qatar. It is the main hub and central transit point of state-owned carrier Qatar Airways.

Prayer Facilities at Hamad Doha International Airport


Whether you're transiting, arriving, or departing, read on to discover how Doha International Airport ensures a seamless travel experience for Muslim passengers.

Prayer rooms - Doha International Airport is equipped with numerous prayer rooms (musallas) throughout its terminals. The prayer rooms are separate for men and women, ensuring privacy and comfort. These rooms are easily accessible, well-maintained, and equipped with ablution facilities.

Mosque: The airport complex also features a beautiful mosque, located near the parking area. The mosque has ample space to accommodate a large number of worshippers, making it an excellent option for congregational prayers.


Qatar Airways operates the vast majority of connections to and from Doha

Qatar Airways is the biggest carrier at the airport, with many layovers for its passengers happening here. Doha is served by many fewer additional carriers, by contrast with Dubai, the home of Qatar Airways' arch-rival, Emirates. The major European airlines usually provide a single connection to Doha from their main hubs (e.g. Lufthansa from Frankfurt Airport, KLM from Amsterdam Schiphol), but minor ones do not. Pretty much all airlines of the Middle East, Turkey included, provide connections to Doha. Relatively few Asian airlines do so, however. The exception is a relatively good choice of connections to India and Pakistan, with Indian airlines such as Air India Express, IndiGo, and Jet Airways serving several major cities.

All flights from GCC countries have been relaunched a while ago.

Ground transportation at Hamad Doha International Airport


Buses serve the airport on routes 109, 727, 737, 747, and 777. The 7xx routes can be remembered because they are the model numbers of famous Boeing aircraft.
