As Qatar has grown so has its airline – and demand at its airport. Ten years ago just over 5 million people a year passed through. Now that’s closer to 25 million and likely to continue rising rapidly. Even with frequent expansion and refurbishment it has long been evident that Doha International Airport couldn’t be the answer the nation needed.
This is also because Qatar has a spirit of not just delivering but of exceeding. While a new airport with more capacity was the obvious answer it wasn’t the chosen one. Instead a plan was created for a new airport that could do more: that could define the future.
