The festivities aim to "showcase the rich culture and traditions of the State of Qatar and the Middle East"

In honor of Ramadan, Doha's Hamad International Airport and Qatar Duty Free are hosting a series of festivities and experiences.

"Known as a time of spiritual renewal and generosity for Muslims worldwide, the Holy Month of Ramadan holds particular significance for Qatar and its people," explains a press release. "During this time, Muslims fast from dawn until dusk, engage in prayer and reflection, and spend time with family and friends. Hamad International Airport and Qatar Duty Free are jointly embracing the spirit of Ramadan, where millions of travelers can experience the traditions of this holy month throughout the airport’s terminal."

Badr Mohammed Al Meer, Chief Operating Officer at Hamad International Airport, said, “Hamad International Airport strives to showcase the rich culture and traditions of the State of Qatar and the Middle East. Our commitment to creating memorable experiences for our passengers is reflected in bringing the spirit and essence of Ramadan to passengers. As the gateway to Qatar and the region, Hamad International Airport remains dedicated to create unique and innovative experiences for all visitors.”

Ramadan tents are set up near the Fendi and Ralph’s cafés adorning the Orchard, and Arabic coffee and dates are served to passengers during Iftar at booths located throughout the airport.

"A special occasion in the Gulf Region, the Garangao, falling on the 14th day of Ramadan, is celebrated by children dressing in traditional clothing, singing the Garangao song, and receiving sweets and nuts. Passengers traveling from the airport will experience this festivity near the Lamp Bear with a traditional children's performance and giveaways distributed to young ones

"Qatar Duty Free has returned as the main sponsor of Qatar’s W Hotel Sultan’s Tent, where guests can enjoy rich Iftar and Sohour buffet menus and experience the most memorable Ramadan gatherings."

Passengers traveling through the airport will be introduced to a selection of Ramadan specials by QDF, including oud fragrances from world-renowned beauty brands and premium Arabic sweets, chocolates, and dates. In addition, multiple F&B options by QDF will provide dine-in and grab-and-go options suitable for the diverse passengers at the airport. The Harrods Tea Room will introduce a special Ramadan menu with bespoke flavors.
