Hamad International Airport DOH - opened April 30, 2014 - is now its primary airport (while Doha Airport will now only function as secondary airport). It serves the State and its City of Doha, and will also be used for international stopovers.  In March 2016 Skytrax awarded Hamad International the  'Best World's Best Airport' in the 20-40-million passenger category. It also classified it as the sixth Airport in the World to achiev a 5-Star Status. In April 2017 Hamad Airport also achieved Level 3 of ACI's Airport Carbon Accreditation.  

Hamad International Airport is located at the City of Doha's southeastern end - accessible via Ras Abu Abbound Street - and only 4 km east of  Doha Airport.
