The airport is also famous for its works of art strewn around every corner, from small and simple pieces, such as fake birds on the roofs of information boards, to other pieces that are difficult to ignore, such as Swiss artist Urs Fischer’s ‘Bear Lamp’, which is a giant teddy bear Sitting under a black lamp, it has become an approved icon that coincides with the name of the Qatari airport.

The airport also has many facilities that meet the needs of different categories of travelers, such as special rooms for families, meeting rooms for businessmen, and even baby care areas for new mothers.
