Hamad International Airport (DOH) is a major connecting hub in the Middle East. It boasts of a world-class infrastructure and spacious lounges. With more than 45 million passengers, the airport also witnessed an impressive 31% increase in footfall compared to the previous year.

DOH has replaced Singapore’s Changi Airport to top the list of best airports in the world in 2024. Hamad International Airport also maintained the top spot in the World’s Best Airport Shopping category for the second consecutive year. Hub of the popular airline, Qatar Airways, Doha Airport was also adjudged as the Best Airport in the Middle East. Notably, DOH has maintained this position for a solid 10 years now. 

World’s Best Airport for a Reason

For years, Hamad and Changi airports have been vying for the title of the world’s best airport. While Changi Airport has dominated the list in the past, Hamad International Airport emerged victorious this year, continuing its trend from 2022 and 2021.

Doha Airport stands out for its innovative offerings for passengers. The airport provides free city tours for passengers with long layovers, which may have contributed to its high ranking. Many travelers flying to Europe or North America, choose Hamad Airport as their transit hub. No matter if flying through Qatar Airways flights or with any other airline, passengers enjoy the world-class facilities at Doha Airport. All of these help travelers make the most of their layover exploring the DOH airport.
