Doha's HIA sees cargo volume rise 20.8pc in 2016 to 1.7m tonnes


Doha's Hamad International Airport (HIA) located in the capital of Qatar handled a total of 1.7 million tonnes of air freight, including cargo and mail, in 2016, representing year-on-year growth of 20.8 per cent.
The airport recorded a total of 245,800 landings and take-offs during the year, up 15.8 per cent compared to 2015, London's Air Cargo News reported.
According to the airport operator: "During 2016, HIA invested in increasing its capacity, improving its product offering and redesigning its operational processes to efficiently accommodate the increasing traffic over the coming years."
On the apron, 15 new aircraft parking stands were constructed to support the operations of Qatar Airways, the flag-carrier that bases its hub at HIA. During 2016, Qatar Airways began connecting Doha directly to 14 new destinations.
HIA's chief operating officer, Mohammed Al Meer, added: "Our capacity expansion programme launched in 2016 has also enabled us to efficiently serve our increasing passenger numbers and handle growing cargo and aircraft movements with our renowned high-quality standards. The programme will ensure that HIA continues to be one of the leading aviation hubs of the world in the coming years."
