Airports these days make up to 70% of their revenues from retail and not from the actual flight operations anymore. So it is hardly surprising that all newly built airports have a particularly large retail area.

hi Sal73,

first of all you will not land in the new aiport as its not opened yet so you will be in the current one, 2ed 50 min is not really enough you will spend it on transfering from the plane to the gate as bording will be already prossesing - not even to shop in the duty free

Thanks love-qatar,
yes, I read about the delay for the opening of the new airport (hopefully I will see it next time, it looks amamzing!).

I have never been to DOH, how does it work for transfers between the "Arrival Terminal" and "Departures Terminal".
Looking at an aerial view there is over 1km from one to the other. Do I have to get a shuttle service?

What are the future plans for the current airport?

Sal73x you sould stay one/2 days in Doha to see it
and you can text me any time if you will and need assestent... well you will not need anything the bus will come and pick you and all the other passingers from the plain toward either the arival terminal or the transfer terminal, there will be vedio and audio explaining that when you are in the bus and before the plane land in Doha, just pay attention when you are in the bus because they will call and say arrival to doha or transfer to other flights and you doha have to worry about bags, but make sure you have your bording for your conect flight in the country of departure so you dont delay at doha airport, it will be smooth and easy dont worry, they will give you as well a stiker wich match the doors where you should leave the bus

here you go... that link will explain to you what you should do, and they will display it before landing as i mantioned up and in the busses
enjoy your flight in advance

I flew through DOH in November and the current airport (or lack of) is a complete dump. I wish this terminal had been open!

Everyone passing through the airport just looked confused, it was like a military base.

Does anyone on here know whether they will be recruiting any ex-pat Tower rated Air Traffic Controllers for the new facility, or does anyone have contact details of who to enquire with?

Many thanks in advance.,

Regards
