Future Airport Developments:
The new Hamad International Airport, located 4 km from Doha International Airport, is now scheduled to open April-2014', when Qatar is to move in (other airlines will be transferred gradually). Further phased construction projects will continue for some time thereafter. With the completion of the first two concourses (with 41 contact gates & 22 remote-stand gates) the new airport is to have a capacity of 28 million passengers a year, gradually to increase over the following years. Hamad Airport will have extra-long two parallel runways and initially one passenger terminal with Concourses A, B & C. The last phase of construction of the terminal is to be completed by 2015.
Upon completion of the entire project, the new airport will have a public mosque, two luxury hotels, a health spa, a large parking garage, three central utility plants, a huge catering facility, and internal automated people movers at both arrivals & departures levels.
After phased transfer of Doha's airlines to Hamad Airport, Doha is to handle only helicopter, general aviation, college & military operations.
