Hamad International Airport (HIA) has beaten off competition from 550 other global airports to be named the Best Airport in the World for the second year running by the SKYTRAX World Airport Awards 2022.

The airport also retained its title as the Best Airport in the Middle East for the eighth year in a row.

“We are thrilled that Qatar’s main gateway to the world has once again been named the world’s best airport at the SKYTRAX 2022 World Airport Awards – adding another milestone achievement to HIA’s history,” said Engr. Badr Mohammed Al-Meer, Chief Operating Officer at Hamad International Airport.

“Our commitment and service excellence continues to be a benchmark in the aviation industry thanks to our staff and stakeholder’s commitment and dedication – as we all look forward towards an even brighter year ahead.”

The rankings are based on voting submitted by air travellers and passenger satisfaction across 39 key performance indicators for airport services and products including check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security, immigration and departure.

HIA welcomed 7.14 million passengers in Q1 2022 and currently serves 156 destinations, partnering with more than 36 airline partners.
