The 2023 edition of the AFC Asian Cup is just around the corner.
Just over a year on from hosting the 2022 World Cup, Qatar will once again welcome a football tournament to their homeland as reigning champions - after defeating Japan four years ago - of this competition.
Hamad International Airport (HIA) stands poised to welcome visitors from around the globe as Qatar hosts the prestigious 18th edition of AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023.
Set to take place from January 12 to February 10, 2024, the tournament will see 24 of the continent’s top teams competing in 51 matches across Qatar’s state-of-the-art stadiums.
Drawing from the lessons and expertise gained during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, the airport has meticulously planned its operations to ensure a seamless arrival experience for visitors entering the vibrant city of Doha.
Extensive collaboration with transport providers guarantees efficient connectivity to and from the airport, the city and the stadiums, with multiple public transport options, including taxis, bus services and the metro, available for visitors.
Arriving passengers can access necessary amenities like foreign exchange services, food and beverage options, convenient stores, ATMs and purchase local sim cards, which are all conveniently located at the arrival hall.
Passengers who have a transit time of more than eight hours have the option of booking a Doha city tour through Discover Qatar, the destination management company of Qatar Airways, to experience the city during the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023.
Qatar Airways, the country’s national carrier, has partnered with the Asian Football Confederation to transform the fan experience at Asian football competitions in the coming years, including the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023.
The home and hub of Qatar Airways, Hamad International Airport is set to bring the tournament experience to the terminal with a dedicated fan zone and exciting activations that will provide an immersive experience to passengers.
Upon departure, visitors can indulge in the distinctive offerings at Hamad International Airport, such as the iconic indoor tropical garden, ORCHARD, or explore Souq Al Matar, a lively traditional Qatari market within the airport premises, providing a glimpse into the rich local culture and warm hospitality of Doha.
Hamad International Airport is a candidate for World’s Best Airport at the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2024.
