Hamad International Airport unveils expansion plan

A huge water feature and indoor tropical garden will be the focal points of Hamad International Airport’s expansion, which it plans to complete before Qatar hosts the FIFA World Cup in 2022.

A new central concourse will link concourses D and E, with work due to begin early next year.

It is set to expand capacity to 53 million passengers a year by 2022. In 2018 the airport handled 34.5 million passengers.

The concourse will include a 10,000 sqm tropical garden and a 268 sqm water feature, reminiscent of the recently-opened Jewel complex at Singapore Changi airport, which contains the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and a tropical garden.

In a tweet showing a CGI run-through of the new facility, Hamad International said its aim was to be destination in its own right.
