By Hibah Noor

Hamad International Airport (HIA) has reported serving a total of 9.38 million passengers in the second quarter of 2019, making it the busiest second quarter the airport has seen.

The record-breaking Q2 saw passenger numbers growing by 18.9% compared with the same quarter last year.

Qatar’s state-of-the-art terminal has also handled 56,452 aircraft movements from April to June 2019, a 5.48% increase compared to the same quarter last year.

HIA served 3,427,723 passengers in April, 2,792,445 in May, and 3,152,384 in June. The airport also handled 18,997 aircraft movements in April, 18,487 movements in May and 18,968 movements in June.

Commenting on the rewarding figures of the second quarter, Engr. Badr Mohammed Al Meer, Chief Operating Officer at Hamad International Airport, said: “We are happy to witness these extremely positive results in the second quarter of 2019. This growth momentum in passenger numbers reflects HIA’s commitment to working continuously to strongly grow the airport and ensure it to be the experience of choice for all travellers. It is also a testament to the rapid growth of Qatar Airways which currently operates a modern fleet of more than 250 aircraft via its hub at HIA to more than 160 destinations worldwide.”

In May 2019, HIA marked its fifth year of operations.

For the second consecutive year, HIA received the title Best Airport for Passenger Experience from AirHelp, the world’s leading air passenger rights specialist.
