Qatar Airways, which operates Doha International Airport, has built its first and business class passengers a shiny new terminal.
It offers a range of services to pamper premium passengers – from duty free shopping, restaurants and spa treatments, sauna and jacuzzi to conference rooms and secretarial services.
Let’s not forget the children and nanny who will be travelling at the back of the aircraft – they too can check in at the terminal and use selected areas, including a play area and nursery.
Any medical concerns can be swiftly dealt with before embarkation too – there is a doctor and nurse on duty in a fully manned medical centre.
Dedicated check-in facilities, concierge meet and greet services, fast-track security and five dedicated boarding gates should all ensure a stress-free passage through the terminal.
The facility, which was opened on 27 November, was built as part of $200 million expansion at the airport to support the ambitious growth plans of its home carrier. Qatar Airways is by far the largest operator using the airport, operating some 90% of flights in and out of Doha. The carrier has 20 Boeing 777s on order and is still planning a large order for Airbus A350s once the final configuration of the aircraft is known.
