The Peninsula

Navigation could be described as controlling and operating the movement of a craft from one location to another. We can, therefore, distinguish many types of navigation: marine, air, military and even one used in the oil and gas industry.

It is a study dating back to the earliest human civilisations, with the ancient travellers relying on the position of the stars and hand-drawn maps. Indeed, the instruments of navigation have always been a crucial part of the process, as they allowed for the highest possible precision and proper displacement of a vehicle or a craft. Unfortunately, the star position-based estimations and, later, analogue tools such as compasses and astrolabes, used back in the day were not enough to provide utmost precision. That has evolved with the age of technology. Nowadays, numerical devices and instruments are employed within the different sectors of this study, largely improving the exactness and pinpointing of the vehicles’ location and, hence, aiding the navigators in their paths.

So, what are some technologies and systems put in place to ensure the proper functioning of all of these various operations?

Satellite-based systems

You have probably guessed it, the modern-day navigation relies largely on the Global Navigation Satellite systems (GNSS), such as your global positioning system. You may know it as, simply, GPS.  As we’ve said previously, in aviation precision is of the highest importance and so the GNSS are alimented by what we call “augmentation systems”. There are three types: ground-bases, satellite-based (SBAS) and aircraft-based augmentation systems.  The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) prescribes these to improve the performance-based navigation. For instance, SBAS, supports wide-area and regional augmentation of information.

Radio frequency-based solutions 

Once within the range of the aerodrome, the airplane is guided by many other tools.

Firstly, we have instrument landing systems (ILS). This infrastructure’s functioning is based on radio frequency emission and is implemented in short-range guidance for the planes as they approach a runway in obscure weather conditions, such as in rain, at dusk or at night-time. This is a critical safety measure, used along with the airport lighting to help pilots determine the exact position of the runways. An example of ILS, which you may recognise is the glide path localiser. Another radio frequency-based equipment used in aviation is one that measures the distance between the airplane and the ground station (DME). It is used during landing and en-route.

Aircraft also use Doppler VHF omnidirectional range (DVOR), which operates over a short to medium-range distance in order to determine the flight’s bearing and aid it during approach to the aerodrome. As their name suggests, DVORS send omnidirectional radio signals to the receiving units that could identify the crafts’ exact positions, helping them maintain travel in the right direction.

Interestingly, in military, we see the use of TACAN or tactical air navigation. This is a more precise version of the above-mentioned VOR and DME systems.

We also have non-directional radio beacons, which are not only used in aviation but also, in marine navigation. Unlike the other discussed systems, these operate over a longer range and lower altitudes, as they follow the curvature of the Earth. This also implies that these signals are affected by geographical factors such terrain types, weather and atmospheric conditions.  Following the touchdown, an aircraft needs to be guided to the parking area. Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGC) is an essential solution that provides pilots with information necessary for and smooth travelling across the aerodrome grounds, avoiding potential obstacles on taxiways and leading the plane straight to the jetways.

The modern navigation tools vary in their purposes and functioning, and multiply as world travelling grows. The solutions presented are only a fraction of the existing instruments that help guide pilots and their craft, ensuring safety and precision throughout the journey. Bayanat engineering specialises in civil and military aviation solutions, as well as in those related to marine and oil and gas navigation.

Bayanat Engineering: Airport surveillance and security

Airports, the international hubs of the world, oversee the passage of millions of visitors every year. With large crowds constantly circulating, it is essential to ensure not only their safety, but that of the entire airport, maintaining its proper and lawful functioning. It is also important to prevent any potential threat from entering the country.

And so, there is a plethora of techniques put in place to ensure security of the passengers, staff, equipment, vehicles and aircraft at any given location of the facility.

Security and surveillance equipment is most commonly used to observe the traffic in the monitored zone, including potential animals, vehicles or people on the site. It also detects unfavourable meteorological conditions or other aircraft in sight of the runway. These infrastructures operate both at daytime and at night, the latter being a more risky period in terms of potential threats due to lower visibility.

The Surface Movement Guidance and Control System

It is important to know that the airports are equipped with a special surveillance system, called the Surface Movement Guidance and Control System (ASMGCS). This includes a variety of different devices and infrastructure.

More generally, these could be separated into two parts: non-cooperative surveillance (Surface movement radars, microwave sensors), and cooperative surveillance, among which, you could find the Multilateration system.
According to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the ASMGCS maintains the rate of all vehicles’ and aircraft’s movement on the surface of the aerodrome, by providing these with routing, guidance and surveillance. It declares the surface movement rate in any given weather conditions that enter into the aerodrome visibility operational level. Finally, it also assures safety requirements are met.

Different types of radars

Based on this, you can imagine that the infrastructure consists of various important components. We have already mentioned the Surface Movement radars (SMR, GMR), these are used by surface traffic controllers to detect aircraft and vehicles on the airport grounds, during the day, the night, at dusk, dawn and, more generally, in low visibility conditions. This very precise equipment is designed to provide callsigns that identify the target, as well as send warnings in case of a potential danger.

But this isn’t quite the end of the radar use in aviation. The spectre of these devices is huge, and each type contributes its specific role to the surveillance and safety of the airport and aircrafts. For instance, the primary surveillance radar (PSR), the only one that does not require any specific equipment on board of the aircraft, uses reflected radio waves to determine the latter’s coordinates and direction. The aircraft receives the radio signal from the radar and emits it back to the PSR’s antenna.

However, the primary radar, apart from determining an object’s position, is unable to identify the exact target. This is where the secondary radar comes into play.

Another component of the ASMGCS that we’ve addressed are the multilareration systems (MLAT), which are a part of the cooperative surveillance. As with the radars, the accuracy of the multilateration systems is a crucial aspect of their functioning. They provide information on the vehicle’s position to its exterior recipients, i.e., to the air traffic controller.

Detecting objects outside the aircraft

Automatic Dependent Surveillance technologies (ADS-B/TIS-B), reliant on the satellite navigation, are used by an aircraft to determine its exact position, so that it is broadcast and tracked. Not only does the airport staff depend on this information, but other airplanes in the area also need to be aware of each other’s positions, in order to avoid accidents and, hence, contributes to air navigation safety.

But it isn’t only airplanes that could get in the way of their winged homologues. On the ground, what is referred to as the runway foreign objects debris (FOD), constitutes any objects fallen from the aircraft, broken ground equipment or even birds. To maintain the overall safety of the aerodrome, many other types of surveillance are put in place for runways and airside. These and many other aviation solutions are provided by the engineering companies such as Bayanat Engineering, the latter being a leader in its sector in the Middle East. The company provides surveillance and security systems, along with many other solutions to large international airports including Hamad International Airport.

Ship related solutions

Ship related solutions

When considering the world of nautical shipping, it’s unlikely that the first thing that comes to mind is the technology used to keep everything running smoothly. However, there are plenty of pieces of technology that can be applied to navigation, tracking and communications that you wouldn’t expect to be as important as they are. Read on to find out about some of the vital systems that keep ships safe, and why they are so important.


Visual Guidance Docking System


One of the key features used in ensuring that ships and boats of all sizes are able to safely reach their destinations are Visual Guidance Docking Systems or VDGS. A VDGS is a system designed to give drivers as much information as possible when coming in on their final approach and is a system often also employed on a taxiway to ensure precision parking of planes is far more easily achieved. Using mirrors, simple traffic lights and lightboxes to line drivers up onto their marks, drivers can find it much easier than having to use sight alone.


Navigating on a 2D plane when guided by lights is a concept that can work on land or sea, so VDGS is a highly translatable system that can be used to safely bring ships in to harbour with very few changes. From this point, an intercom can be used to guide the driver to any adjustment or confirm the success of their arrival. This means ships can park in an inch-perfect manner every time, supported by all of the visual aids possible.




Ports and docks can be some of the busiest transport hubs around, especially in the world of shipping. This means that the dock headquarters needs to be in constant contact with the captains of incoming ships to organise their arrivals. The alternative is dozens of ships arriving simultaneously, leading to an extremely dangerous situation.


VHF transmitters can often be ideal for these cases, as they can transmit over distances of around 60 miles. This will give drivers of any incoming boats plenty of advanced warning in the case of an issue or delay to their docking procedure. Such advanced warnings can keep everything running smoothly, and protect both ships and docks from major incidents.


Sea Traffic Management


Managing traffic at sea can be incredibly similar to doing so on land, with ships entering the area surrounding docks on a 2D plane. Part of the issue, however, can be tracking the ships. It may be easy to keep an eye on vehicles such as aircraft using radar systems, but ships are harder to keep on radar due to their lack of altitude. This means that you need a different way of keeping track of ships, or you run the risk of being unable to estimate the arrival times of traffic.


Instead, many ships will make use of satellite-based navigation systems. These are effective worldwide, as the global network of satellites allows for extremely accurate tracking of ships. This tracking means traffic controllers can guide ships to spaces and allow for docking on a controlled schedule.

Bayanat Engineering Qatar: Supplying with extra-low voltage and current systems  

Bayanat Engineering Qatar: Supplying with extra-low voltage and current systems

Nowadays, we see more and more enterprises invest in extra-low voltage (ELV) and current systems. These systems are energy and cost efficient and implementing them into what is called a “smart building” promotes both sustainability and interconnectivity within the infrastructure. It comes as no surprise that airports around the world are, too, beginning to incorporate the ELV systems into their construction. Hamad International Airport is no exception, having been supplied by the Bayanat Engineering group with Extra-low voltage and current systems.

“So, where exactly are these systems used?” one might ask. Spoiler: the employment of the ELV stretches across a number of sectors in the airport framework. It covers anything from security and communications to air conditioning to cell phone and wireless distribution – and these are only a few examples! But before exploring some of uses, let us first explain what Extra-low voltage and current systems are.

Explaining ELV and low current systems
Extra-low voltage and current systems are put in places where a risk of an electricity-related hazard may occur. This, of course, implies a plethora of different infrastructure within an airport. In engineering, a device using the ELV system is one that operates in the range of 50 Volts alternative current (V a.c.) and 120 Volts direct current (V d.c.). Special isolating transformers deliver power to these devices through their secondary windings (coils that carry energy at the transformed voltage to the appliance).

The secondary, as well as the primary windings’ insulation is known for its high impulse withstand levels. In fact, the distance between the live elements (carrying the electrical current to the appliances) in an extra-low voltage system has to at least correspond to that of the two windings.

The various uses of ELV in an airport

Now that the technical side of things is laid out, let us dive into the application of these structures. As previously stated, they are used in a variety of sectors around the aerodrome. Here are a few notable areas of their implementation:

Safety and security 

Let us start with the most important — the safety of anyone present on the airport grounds. In previous articles, we have discussed the many security systems that are put in place in airports around the world.

Extra-low voltage and current systems are also used in devices, tailored to ensure protection of the airport visitors. Namely, they are installed in the fire alarm and fire suppression infrastructure. These are programmed to immediately alert the airport staff about any emergency development within and without the building, while, at the same time, ensuring the overall safety of the aerodrome.

It is important to know that the airport data centres, that store customer information, and therefore have to be efficiently and carefully operated and protected at all times, also rely on the ELV set-up.

Communications and information 

The information-communications sector is highly reliant on the system, too. For instance, ELV is used in command-and-control rooms, wayfinding, as well as in public announcements and messages that one could constantly hear at an airport, as a part of the Public address and voice alarm system (PA/VA). You might have guessed that it is also used in the digital signage and video walls, such as the electronic signboards that display arrival and departure times, or the baggage claim information. Video boards could also be used for a better visibility of information (due to their size), as well as for airport advertising. You might have seen one projecting right in front of the famous Lamp Bear, a landmark of the Hamad International Airport.

Another communications sector where the ELV is used is the satellite and master antenna TV systems, such as that in Hamad International Airport.

Timing and smooth operating of the airport systems

ELV is also used in devices and infrastructure that are responsible for maintaining efficient functioning of the various airport sectors and systems; such devices include master clocks. These could be describes as “directing” parts of the synchronised airport clock network, relaying timing signals to the “slave” clocks. Building management systems (BMS) also operate on ELV.

As we have seen, airports become increasingly reliant on extra-low voltage and current systems, as more and more devices are developed to operate on these structures.

Environmental solutions in the world

Environmental solutions in the world

Climate change is a huge environmental problem that we’re currently facing and will face over the next few decades. There are also other environmental concerns and challenges that we have ahead of us including the loss of biodiversity and water shortages. So, we’ve put together a few environmental solutions that can help you take action against the decline of our environment.

Air pollution monitoring systems

Coming from agricultural activities and vehicle emissions among others, air pollution is a growing environmental concern for many countries. Not only does it impact global temperatures, but it is most likely to blame for the rise in human respiratory illnesses.

Vaisala, a partner of Bayanat Engineering Group, has recently launched air quality sensors to complement its monitoring solution. Not only will this help enhance the sustainability and safety in communities, but it will also help improve their quality of life. As a global leader in industrial and environmental measurement, Vaisala has set up an air quality sensor that is accurate, cost-effective, and simple to set up.

‘Air pollution is a major environmental risk to health, yet 91% of the world’s population lives in areas where the World Health Organization (WHO) deems the quality of air to be below acceptable,’ said Samuli Hänninen, Vice President at Vaisala. ‘By providing trustworthy insights, our solution helps mitigate the adverse effects of air pollution to make city air more breathable and enable proactive environmental stewardship.’ (

The benefits of this air quality monitoring solution include:

• AQT530 will accurately measure pollutants like nitric acid, nitrogen dioxide, and carbon monoxide.

• Installation, deployment, and maintenance are easy.

• Unprecedented and unparalleled data security and protection.

• In-depth 24/7 reporting: the data is sent to a web-based database that has a gateway solution wirelessly to bring down exposure to any pollution hotspots.

Solar radiation monitoring systems

Meteorology has quite often been used in predicting the weather and climate. While it can be dated more than 1,000 years ago, significant innovations were made from the 18th century. Meteorology refers to the study of any processes in our atmosphere that cause certain weather conditions.

We can monitor solar radiation using meteorological sensors. They’re usually set up across runways and on towers, not on buoys. Meteorological sensors are great to measure a wide selection of weather and weather-influencing factors such as temperature, wind, humidity, and, of course, solar radiation. This allows countries to monitor and prepare for extreme weather conditions to make sure that their citizens are kept safe. Meteorology technology is also needed in sectors such as military, agriculture, aviation, and urban planning. For instance, in the airport, meteorology is used so that people won’t have to cancel their flights due to adverse weather conditions.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Bayanat Engineering Group by giving us a call on 974 4427 3784 for more information and guidance on environmental solutions in the world. Specialising in airside and terminal systems and air traffic management, our expert and friendly team is more than happy to offer a range of solutions to fulfil the needs of civil aviation and airport authorities.

Three amazing innovations in aviation software

Three amazing innovations in aviation software

It might seem like we have been utilising the skies for a long time, but our first successful flight was only a little under 120 years ago. In that short time, aviation has advanced tremendously thanks to innovative hardware and software developments.


With sprawling airports to manage, as well as hundreds of incoming and outgoing aircraft, the aviation industry relies heavily on aviation software to operate seamlessly. We’re going to take a look at three amazing innovations in aviation software that allow us to conquer the skies.


Air Traffic Management (ATM) automation systems


Juggling the steady flow of aircraft moving in and out of airports is an incredibly stressful job. Thankfully, innovations in automation have helped this area of aviation in a number of ways. Air Traffic Management (ATM) automation systems have been steadily advancing since the 1950s, offering air traffic controllers a much-needed helping hand.


Today, the most cutting edge ATM automation systems can provide incredible functionality, including:


– Defending against transponder malfunctions, blind spots, runway incursions and human perception errors.

– Improving air traffic planning and management

– Improving situational awareness and parsing of useless data

– Automating routine air traffic control tasks


ATM automation systems offer a comprehensive suite of features to help the aviation industry manage and regulate the air traffic going in and out of airports.


Instrument Landing Systems (ILS)


Before Instrument Landing Systems (ILS) were introduced to the aviation industry, pilots were more or less on their own when it came to successfully landing a plane. This left a lot of room for potential errors and misjudgements, which is not what you are looking for when landing aircraft.


These days, modern instrument landing systems help pilots with their approach to landing strips, especially when visual contact is not possible. Not only do they help during inclement weather such as fog, but ILSs also take a lot of the guesswork out of landing aircraft for pilots and airports. ILS can help in a number of ways, such as:


– Increasing the reliability of every landing

– Reducing the ‘decision altitude’, the point where a pilot decides to land or divert from a runway

– Increasing the visibility of the runway regardless of poor weather


Runway Debris Monitoring Systems


Debris on a runway can lead to catastrophic accidents, with something as small as sand causing aircraft problems when landing. Regular inspection of the runway was a tried-and-tested approach, but it still left room for error. Runway Debris Monitoring Systems (RDMS) are a huge step up in this regard, allowing for 24/7 operational surveillance of the runway.


RDMS systems provide airports with incredible functionality to help clear runways of any debris. Some of their features include:


– Round-the-clock surveillance and debris detection

– Multiple camera systems that can work in all light conditions

– Combined imagery to provide a panoramic view of the entire runway


Incredible aviation innovations


It’s no question that software innovations in the aviation industry have already stopped countless incidents and accidents. As time goes on, the aviation industry will benefit greatly from even more innovation, but even today the cutting edge technology behind aviation is nothing short of remarkable.

Bayanat Engineering Qatar for exciting meteorological & environmental solutions

The Peninsula

Doha: Meteorology is the science dealing with the atmosphere and its phenomena, including both weather and climate. Where did the practice of meteorology come from?

Though it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where the origins of meteorology lie in history, many attributes its beginnings to Aristotle, who wrote about metrology way back in 350BC.

Bayanat Engineering Qatar is reliable meteorology solutions provider in Qatar with spanning a range of systems and tools.  Meteorology is a key component within many sectors.

The main sectors that incorporate meteorology into their daily workings include aviation, marine, oil and gas, and military. Countries use meteorology in order to predict the climate change and other phenomena like earthquakes, flooding and other – this can help prepare and prevent the consequence and minimize risk for its citizens.

Bayanat Engineering is proud to have built some of the world’s leading weather forecasting systems for Qatar’s meteorology department and other government entities in Qatar.

There is various interesting technology in meteorology, here are some of them:

Cloud seeding: If you want to make it rain – cloud seeding is an answer. Cloud seeding involves modifying a cloud’s structure to increase the chance of precipitation. Cloud seeding is one of the most advanced and helpful tools in meteorology.

Rain gauges: A rain gauge is a solution used by meteorologists and hydrologists to gather and measure the amount of liquid precipitation over an area in a predefined area, period of time. It is used for determining the depth of precipitation (usually in mm ) that occurs over a unit area and thus measuring rainfall amount.

Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS): An AWOS is a configurable weather system, designed specifically for airports.

It delivers real-time information about weather conditions continuously, to ensure pilots can take off in safe weather conditions. AWOS units most commonly report the latest weather updates in 20-minute intervals. This is ideal for airports that need regular and reliable weather reports to ensure optimal flying conditions for every flight.

Meteorological sensors: Meteorological sensors are most typically deployed on buoys, though they are also commonly set up on towers and across runways. Like AWOSs, meteorological sensors accurately measure a variety of weather conditions and other aviation affecting factors.

An essential element of meteorology is understanding how climate conditions can change quickly. Meteorological sensors are usually placed near a body of water and help to measure changes in weather and climate.

There are other solutions and technologies in meteorology that are used in various sectors: MET Forecasting/Visualisation Systems, Runway Visual Range (RVR), Weather RADARs, LIDARs (Windshear/Wake Vortex Measurement), Thermo Dynamic Profiler/RadioMeters, Lightning detection systems, Radiosonde/weather telemetry systems and Weather Decision Support System.

Hassan Ezzeddine, General Manager Bayanat Engineering Qatar (pictured), said: “Every day, our team at Bayanat Engineering Qatar is dedicated to help our customers to undertake meteorological challenges with simplicity. Our priority is to apprehend operational and efficient tools for them. To achieve this goal, we have dedicated staff with experience and set of skills to serve our customers’ needs.”

“Being major player in Qatar market, we have strong partnership with internationally accredited organizations that have valued our support in implementing their technologies in the region,” he said.

Bayanat Engineering: Qatar’s leading meteorological and environmental solutions provider

“Meteorology is the study of the processes in the Earth’s atmosphere that cause particular weather conditions, especially in order to predict the weather.” – Collins Dictionary. 

Meteorology is used in weather forecasting and predictions about the climate – it can be dated over 1,000 years ago but substantial meteorology innovations were not made until the 18th century.

Since the 18th century, however, meteorology technology has advanced significantly. While we do not think about it in our daily activities, it is possible you have come across it without realisation. Whether you check the forecast, take a plane or even encounter rain on the day – you are unknowingly using the meteorology solutions.

Meteorology influences multiple industries and daily processes.

Countries need meteorology and its reliable systems to prepare and monitor extreme weather conditions, to ensure its citizens safety on the daily basis, as well as meteorology technology is crucial in agriculture, military, aviation, environmental, urban planning and other sectors.

Example of meteorology importance is the airport, the more reliable their services will be as they won’t have to cancel flights last-minute, as they will be able to predict and identify weather patterns, Although the climate in Qatar is predominately pleasant and dry, understanding meteorology is still essential for airports in Qatar to ensure they can provide safe and reliable flights for their passengers.

Bayanat Engineering is honoured to have built some of the world’s leading weather forecasting systems for airports, and are happy to play a part in creating systems that keep Oil and Gas industry experts, aviation, military, and other government and civil entities safe and advanced in weather and meteorological solutions in Qatar.

Solutions in various fields

Aviation: It is apparent that weather conditions affect the flight schedule and are important for Air Traffic control and crucial part of aviation industry. Example would be the use of runway visual range (RVR) systems to ensure a clear and safe landing strip for the pilot to land their aircraft. The RVR is calculated using transmissometers, which are a piece of equipment installed along runways to determine the visual range left until the aircraft’s landing point.

Oil and Gas: This industry is another example of the importance of weather solutions as they are located any where from the middle of the ocean to deep underground. Rapid changes in weather conditions or harsh weather phenomena can affect the mining of oil and gas and threaten employees. That’s where meteorology comes in – using equipment such as automated weather observing systems (AWOS) and weather decision support systems (WDSS), oil and gas companies can continuously monitor the weather and modify their working strategies consequently.

Military: The military is responsible for defence involved in the navy and marine, as well as military aviation, all of which depend on weathercasting aspects. This means it is important to monitor it at all times. In addition to that, remote weather monitoring stations are implemented throughout camps in order to achieve the highest and most accurate levels for weather data collection.

Solutions examples

Rain gaugessmart water monitoring. The amount of rainfall is key to industries such as agriculture, which relies on the climate to grow produce. In addition to that, it affects the infrastructure and urban planning development, affects aviation sectors, oil and gas industries and other.

Lightning detection systems: contains a network of sensors which calculate the electromagnetic radiation that is released by lightning. The sensor network uses the radiation data to predict where lightning may strike and at what strength.

Wind profiler: This is a piece of equipment that is used to monitor wind speed, direction and conditions. Wind profilers use sound waves (SODAR) or radar waves (RADAR) to detect these conditions at various levels above the ground – from sea level right up to the troposhere (zero to 17 kilometres above sea level).
These wind measurement systems are able to detect vertical and horizontal wind speed, thermal stratification, turbulence and direction, as well as measuring remote temperature profiles within the atmosphere.

Outdoor air purifiers: with environmental issues being of growing worldwide worry, companies and governments around the world are looking at ways to reduce carbon emissions and reverse the negative impacts of pollution on our planet. Air pollution from vehicle emissions, agricultural activities and other industries are likely to blame for the increase in human respiratory illnesses – not to mention the devastating effects of rising global temperatures. Pollution is a significant problem in many countries – particularly in urban environments. Industries such as transportation and aviation have a large role to play in helping to keep our air clean, so companies are increasingly looking for ways to cancel out emissions.

Our motto is – we believe in trust- and transparency and our work always speak for itself. We appreciate our clients for trusting us and we hope to be able to achieve even better results for our customer’s satisfaction,” Ezzeddine added.

Meteorology touches every part of our lives, whether we’re aware of it directly through an interest in weather or it’s something we don’t even consider as we board our flight. An understanding of it is fundamental to daily ongoings, including logistics and even land management, enabling us to plan and predict life, especially in adverse conditions – which meteorology allows us to navigate.

It is important to comprehend the accuracy of the technology that is used in such vital part of our lives and Bayanat Engineering Qatar can deliver it to the excellent standards.

How is Qatar’s busiest airport preparing for the FIFA 2022 World Cup?

How is Qatar’s busiest airport preparing for the FIFA 2022 World Cup?

With the clock to the world’s biggest sporting event ticking down, the 2022 World Cup host Qatar is preparing for an influx of football fans from around the world. As the first Arab state to host the World Cup, Qatar is hoping to make a good impression.


One of the biggest challenges will be addressing the incredible numbers of football fans who will be arriving by plane. This is sure to put a massive strain on the aviation industry in Qatar, with infrastructure designed for the small population of over 2 million residents.


Hamad International Airport (HIA)


Hamad International Airport (HIA) is Qatar’s largest airport and has been at the centre of aviation innovation over the past few years, largely in preparation for the World Cup. With major renovations taking place since 2019, hopes are high that HIA will be able to handle the surge of World Cup visitors.


At the moment, around 10 million passengers per year use HIA airport, but the intention has always been to expand the existing infrastructure. When it was built in 2003, engineers deliberately designed the airport to handle around three times the expected passenger capacity, allowing for some 29 million passengers to use the airport.


With the latest redevelopment of HIA airport, it seems as though they are aiming for a much loftier capacity goal. By 2022, Qatari officials have already stated that they hope HIA will handle at least 58 million passengers, just in time for the World Cup. The final redevelopment, which will be completed after 2022, aims to extend even further, with estimates of the airport handling anywhere up to 93 million passengers per year.


What to expect


As well as passenger capacity, Qatar’s busiest – and only international – airport will receive a few aesthetic improvements too. Part of the second stage of the HIA airport expansion will include a 10,000 square metre indoor tropical garden, featuring a collection of exotic plants in the central concourse of the airport. There are also plans to integrate a 270-metre water feature which will be the cherry on top of this illustrious redevelopment.


There will be other additions to HIA airport to accommodate for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, too. Namely, a 12,000 square metre retail and food court that will no doubt be dripping in luxury and class. Above the retail space will be the Al Mourjan lounge, a 9,000 square metre area that will offer panoramic views of the tropical garden. There will also be luxury spas, a gymnasium, passenger facilities and a plethora of restaurants.


The world’s greatest airport?


HIA airport has been on the rise for a number of years now, with this planned expansion just another step in this airport’s legacy. With the 2022 World Cup approaching, it seems as though these redevelopments could not have come at a better time for Qatar.


HIA airport is already ranked as one of the world’s greatest airports and is the only one in the Middle East and Asia to receive the coveted Skytrax 5-star Covid-19 Airport Safety Rating. With these new developments well underway, HIA airport may soon become the world’s greatest airport in time for the World Cup in 2022.

Airport surveillance

Surprising facts about airport surveillance

Surveillance is one of the most important parts of any running airport. Not only does it ensure the smooth running of incoming flights and outbound journeys, but it also ensures passenger safety. If you were wondering just how important surveillance is in an airport, take a look at some of the surprising airport facts below.


Airports have thousands of security cameras


This may not come as a surprise as airports need to monitor everything that is going on, right? But did you know just how much is recorded and monitored? According to Genetic report- Heathrow airport has over 6,500 security cameras that constantly monitor everyone to ensure that the airport remains safe.


Airport security has come a long way


Back when airports were still in their infancy, no one was required to complete an exhaustive list of security checks. The only security there were civilian police who stopped petty crimes such as theft and vandalism.


9/11 changed the way airports worked


After the horrendous incident of 9/11, airport security changed dramatically and rapidly. Security checks were made far more rigorous, more security personnel were brought into airports all over the world, and planes were designed to be even more secure in the event of a terror attack.


Some airports are having to install drone detectors


With drones becoming more and more popular, many airports have had to adapt and install drone detection systems that can locate the people who are attempting to fly drones in airspace.


Drone sightings have halted flights in Heathrow before


It’s no wonder that more and more airports are installing drone protection systems. In 2019, all departures were temporarily stopped as a drone was spotted, which caused many disruptions and delays.


There are thousands of security personnel at every airport


It takes a giant team to ensure both the smooth running of an airport and the safety of passengers and workers. But did you know that there are thousands of security staff at each airport? Heathrow alone has over 4,000 security employees who work tirelessly to ensure the airport is secure.


Runways have technologies that can spot debris


The runway is one of the most important parts of any airport as it ensures that planes can fly and land safely. That’s why runways have technologies that can spot any debris so that it can be removed quickly and safely.


Radars are constantly used to monitor every plane


Air traffic control uses many different primary and secondary radars that work together to detect plane movement, allowing air traffic controllers to keep an eye on every single plane in the area surrounding the airport.


You have to be a very calm person to work as an air traffic controller


Air traffic controllers have one of the most important and stressful jobs in an airport, so you have to be a very level-headed and calm person to succeed in this role.


New technologies are making airports more and more secure every day


As technology improves and new systems are created, airports are becoming more and more secure every day. Soon, everything from robotics to AI may be helping airports stay safe and secure.
