Terminal Information

London Heathrow

London Heathrow Airport is home to four terminals and Qatar flights to Doha depart from Terminal 2. Passengers travelling on flights to Doha are advised to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their scheduled flight departure time. Terminal 2 check-in desks are located on the top floor of the terminal building and Qatar offer online and mobile app check-in. Online check in closes 90 minutes before the flight to Doha is due to departure.

Dining options range from coffee and quick bites at Eat and Caffe Nero to restaurant meals at Caviar House & Prunier Seafood Bar, La Salle and Leon.

Doha Airport

Doha Airport (also known as Hamad International Airport) is located east of Doha city centre. The airport has just one terminal, split into five concourses.

It takes around 30 minutes to get through security checks as an arriving international passenger and, once through to the baggage reclaim area, you can pay QAR20.00 for a porter to help with your bags. In the arrivals hall, there’s an information desk and free Wi-Fi connection.

There are a variety of ways to reach Doha city. Car hire companies and a limousine service both operate at the airport. If you’d prefer to take public transport, buses depart from the Bus Pavilion, to your right as you exit the terminal building. Passengers can choose form Route 109 or Rote 747 depending on their final destination and will need to purchase a Karwa Smartcard from the bus driver. A card costs either QAR10.00 for two trips within 24 hours, of QAD20.00 for unlimited trips within 24 hours.

Taxis are also available with a rank located to your left as you exit the terminal building. All airport taxis are metered and charge a standard starting fare of QAR25.00. You’ll need to pay in cash and in local currency.

What to Expect in Doha

Doha experiences hot temperatures all year round. From June to August average temperatures peak at around 42°c and then drop to highs of around 22°c in winter months. Rainfall throughout the summer period is minimal but you may experience the odd shower if you’re visiting Doha between November and March.

A mid-range three course meal for two costs around QAR200.00 (£38.50), you can get an inexpensive restaurant meal for as little as QAR30.00 (£5.80) and a one way journey on public transport is likely to cost around QAR5.00 (£1.00). Taxi travel is also much cheaper in Doha but you will certainly find alcohol, in both restaurants and supermarkets, much more expensive.

Doha is three hours ahead of the UK.
