Qatar Investment Authority’s Airport Portfolio May See Some Expansion in 2024

Founded by the State of Qatar in 2005, the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) is Qatar's sovereign wealth fund. In October 2023, the QIA has an estimated US$475bn of assets under management.

Apart from direct investments in airports, QIA also owns 100% of Qatar Holding LLC and Qatar Airways, through which it invests in airports in Europe and Asia.

For the year 2024, QIA's airport investment portfolio may expand to include airports in Pakistan and Hungary.

Hamad International Airport

Qatar Airways is solely-owned by QIA. In May 2014, QIA had  bought the stakes in its national airline owned by a former prime minister and other shareholders, making Qatar Airways a fully government-owned entity.

In February 2017, it was announced that a new company, MATAR, would be established to manage and operate Hamad International Airport.

MATAR, the Qatar Company for Airports Management and Operation, is a corporate subsidiary of Qatar Airways Group in a contractual agreement with the Government of Qatar to manage the operations of both Hamad International Airport (DOH) and Doha International Airport (DIA).
