As the FIFA World Cup 2022 host, Doha started the expansion of the Hamad International Airport (HIA) Central Concourse Project in 2019 to accommodate more than 58 million passengers annually. The project was completed and opened this month.
Located south of Doha, HIA connects itself to the world as an international hub. HIA is set to further redefine the passenger experience, through this new expansion project, delivering a vibrant destination in Qatar. With efficient environmentally friendly measures, the project design achieved LEED Silver Certification and Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) 4-Star rating recognition.
The project consists of two phases of development. The completed Phase 1 development includes a central concourse that is expanded from the existing terminal, linking to the North Node. The design concept of the roof respects and continues the sweeping, dune-like form of the existing terminal.
