Qatar Duty Free introduces two new dining outlets at HIA

Qatar Duty Free


Qatar Duty Free (QDF) has partnered with HMSHost International, which operates international brands and proprietary concepts in more than 100 airports around the world, for the opening of two new restaurants in the North Node of Hamad International Airport (HIA).

Burger Federation, a casual dining concept, offers guests the chance to indulge in burgers that have been reinvented as contemporary gourmet cuisine. In line with the ever-increasing demand for high-quality meat, HMSHost has provided both locally and internationally inspired burgers made from premium angus beef and the finest fresh toppings.


Spizzico, a quick-service bread and pizza bakery, will offer guests an array of options including pizzas, freshly baked paninis, pastries and salads.

“QDF is delighted to enhance its portfolio of quality eateries inside the award-winning HIA with the addition of these two wonderful new restaurants,” said senior vice president, QDF, Luis Gasset. “We invite travellers to try Burger Federation and Spizzico located at the North Node as well as the more than 30 restaurants and grab-and-go-style establishments offering an extensive selection of cuisine from all corners of the globe, strategically placed across the South and North Duty Free Plazas and along Concourses A, B, C, D and E.”

Also pleased with the new development was CEO, HMSHost International, Walter Seib, who said: “After the opening of Doha’s first Harvest Market restaurant in HIA in January, we are thrilled to announce the opening of two more restaurants that will appeal to hungry travellers. The strategic partnership with one of the fastest-growing airports in the Gulf helps us in delivering our mission and conveying our promise of ‘Feeling Good’ while on the move. Also, this partnership enables us to grow our footprint worldwide with our mixed brand portfolio.”
