A convenient and affordable way to travel around Doha

‘Karwa’ taxis offer a convenient and flexible way travel to and from Hamad International Airport. Our Taxi Pavilion makes it easy to hire and board your taxi.

Arriving passengers can board a taxi at the Taxi Pavilion located to the left end of the Arrivals hall. Follow the ‘Taxi’ sign at the Arrivals Hall or ask at an information desk or use our airport map to find your way.

All taxis are metered and the minimum flag down fare at the airport starts at QAR 25 (USD 7) and QAR 1.20 per kilometre between 05:00 AM to 09:00 PM and QAR 1.80 per KM between 09:00 PM to 05:00 AM

Please ensure you are carrying enough Qatari Riyals to pay for your trip as taxis only accept cash payments in local currency. ATMs are located in proximity to the taxi pavilion for your convenience. 

Hiring a taxi 

You can choose between sedans and vans depending on your seating and luggage requirements. Special taxis are also available for larger families or for passengers travelling with a lot of baggage. For your convenience our taxi coordinators will assist you with loading your luggage and boarding your taxi.

All airport taxis are operated by Mowasalat; a Qatari state-owned company. The vehicles are clean, well-maintained and staffed by trained drivers.

Karwa taxi services can be booked in advance by calling the call center on + +974 800 8294 or via the Karwa App available on Android and iOS.

For the safety and convenience of our customers, we advise to only hire & board airport taxis from the taxi pavilion. Only Taxis operating from this location are authorized to do business at the airport. All taxi drivers and vehicles available at the taxi pavilion are subject to high quality & performance standards and a robust lost and found policy.
