The integration of the Qatar Rail network with the expanding Hamad International Airport demonstrates the country’s preparations to host the 2022 World Cup are on track and will ensure travelers enjoy a seamless, smooth transport experience when visiting our country.

Construction of Phase A of HIA’s expansion is planned to commence by early 2020 and will increase the airport’s capacity to more than 53 million passengers annually by 2022.
