I have a short connection, is this enough time to make my connecting flight?
The minimum connecting time between Qatar Airways flights in Doha is 45 minutes (60 minutes for flights to the United States), this allows sufficient time for your transfer as well as the transfer of your baggage to your onward connecting flight.
In determining the minimum connecting time between transit flights in Doha International Airport, various factors are taken into consideration, such as aircraft parking bay assignment, air traffic clearance, aircraft ramp equipment positioning, as well as other airport ground operational procedures. Under ideal circumstances, the 45 minute minimum connecting time (or 60 minutes for flights to the United States) can be met.
What if I have a transit time of over 8 hours in Doha?
Qatar Airways may offer transit hotel accommodation for customers who face extended transit times (between 8 and 24 hours) in Doha, en-route to their final destination depending on the fare and route purchased. To learn more about -the transit accommodation service, please contact your local Qatar Airways office or visit qatarairways.com/stpc.
