The Qatar Civil Aviation Authority recently released a circular (2) relating to the amendment and introduction of service fees at airports in Qatar. The circular was sent to all airline managers and travel agents and is effective from April 1, 2022.
The Authority has decided to review the current passenger fees and add new passenger fees that include air freight infrastructure fees and security fees too.
All these changes are effective from midnight of April 1, 2022, so these fees will be included on all tickets issued on or after February 1, 2022.
