Qatar's Hamad International Airport will initially be served by 10 airlines when it opens for business on April 1.

Capital Doha's new state-of-the-art gateway will be served by  Air Arabia, Air India Express, Biman Bangladesh Airlines, flydubai, Iran Air, Nepal Airlines, Pakistan International Airlines, RAK Airways, Syrian Air and Yemen Airways.

Qatar Airways’ flights will not be affected as the national flag carrier will move its entire operations from the current Doha International Airport (DIA) to Hamad International Airport (HIA) by the end of the year.

The 10 airlines listed will no longer have a presence at Doha International Airport (DIA) and will operate exclusively from Concourse B at HIA from April 1.

There will be around 32 passenger flights departing daily from HIA equating to approximately 222 flights per week. 

Passengers will enter the passenger terminal complex from the east side entrance and go directly to the check-in counters. After check-in, immigration and security, passengers will be directed to concourse B. At HIA, passengers departing and arriving will be boarding and exiting aircraft via an air bridge to the terminal

Along with the concourse B, the eastern runway, which is the longest of the two runways at HIA, and the uniquely designed, crescent-shaped air traffic control tower, will also be in operation.

Parking will be available at the eastern side of the short-term car park in front of the passenger terminal complex.

Shuttle buses will transport passengers between the two gateways if necessary.
