Is one hour transit time is enough in Doha

Hello there,

I am flying from Chicago to Colombo and back. I have only one hour transit time in Doha on my return trip. I heard Doha air port is remodeled recently and it is very complicate now. If some one traveled through Doha recently (after renovation) please shed some light, whether one hour transit is enough to catch the Doha-Chicago flight?

Thank you. This is the first time I'm taking this route and traveling with Qatar Airways. I was reading some reviews and was concerned about the air line too. Any thoughts? I haven't bought the ticket though. I have plenty of time to change. But this is the shortest total time of flying among all flights.

Next time I fly on Qatar Airways I have a transit time of 50 minutes at Doha. Short transits are commonplace there !

Yes it's fine. Obviously your inbound flight needs to be pretty close to on time. But one hour is perfectly doable. They are very good at short transfers.

Qatar are also good in my opinion, one of the better airlines.

Doha is predominantly a transit airport and specialises in short transit times.

We did our transfer just within the hour at Doha. Got off the plane, walked through the door, queued just around the corner for the connecting flight and walked straight out the door on to the next flight. Many people do connections in around the hour.
