Hamad International AirportHamad International Airport (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.
It consists of one big terminal, with 5 concourses - A, B, C, D, and E - and two central plazas in the middle section to connect them.
To elaborate: the southern plaza connects A and B to the southern end of C in a T-like fashion, and the northern plaze connects D and E to the northern end of C in a Y-like fashion.
If your departing flight leaves in less that 45 minutes, then you can alert ground staff to speed up transfer formalities.
Note that, due to a diplomatic embargo, there are no flights to many Arab states.
Your bus fare can only be paid with a Karwa Smartcard. You can purchase or top-up a Karwa Smartcard from the Mowasalat Information Desk near Baggage Claim Belt 5 & 6. There are three options to choose from:
- QR10 Card (USD 3): two inner-city trips within a 24 hour period
- QR20 Card (USD 5): unlimited trips across Qatar within a 24 hour period
- Regular Karwa Smartcard QAR 30 (USD 8): QAR 10 for the card with QAR 20 value, available to be topped up for future journeys
The Red Line metro is expected to be extended to the airport in 2020.
