Qatar Overflight Permits Procedures

Do you need a permit for qatar overflight?


Yes, you need a permit for Qatar overflight. Similar to other countries in the region, Qatar requires aircraft intending to fly over its airspace to obtain Prior Permission from the relevant aviation authorities. The Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA) oversees the process of granting permits for overflights. This permit ensures that all aircraft entering Qatar's airspace are properly documented and monitored, contributing to the safety and security of the airspace. Therefore, pilots and operators planning to conduct overflights of Qatar must comply with the procedures for obtaining Prior Permission as mandated by the QCAA.

In accordance with the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority's Aeronautical Information Publication (Qatar AIP) and the designated air traffic routes in Qatar, any aircraft owner or operator planning to traverse Cypriot airspace must formally request Qatar overflight clearance from the Air Transport Department at least 48 working hours before the scheduled flight departure. It is crucial to include AFTN (Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunication Network) on your flight plan, and for Qatar, only an overfly permit is necessary.

For those planning a passenger flight landing or technical stop, the Qatar Airports Authority has specific regulations governing the issuance of Qatar Overflight Permits, usually involving associated charges. These charges typically cover Route Navigation Facility Charges for overflight, as well as landing and parking fees for aircraft making halts.

As a participant in the Chicago Convention, Qatar insists on strict compliance with ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) general rules for international air traffic. This encompasses adherence to regulations for the transport of troops, equipment, materials, and dangerous goods. For more detailed information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

About Qatar | History - Geography


Qatar, independent emirate on the west coast of the Persian Gulf.

Occupying a small desert peninsula that extends northward from the larger Arabian Peninsula, it has been continuously but sparsely inhabited since prehistoric times. Following the rise of Islam, the region became subject to the Islamic caliphate; it later was ruled by a number of local and foreign dynasties before falling under the control of the Al Thani (Thani dynasty) in the 19th century.

The Al Thani sought British patronage against competing tribal groups and against the Ottoman Empire—which occupied the country in the late 19th and early 20th centuries—and in exchange the United Kingdom controlled Qatar’s foreign policy until the latter’s independence in 1971. Thereafter, the monarchy continued to nurture close ties with Western powers as a central pillar of its national security. Qatar has one of the world’s largest reserves of petroleum and natural gas and employs large numbers of foreign workers in its production process. Because of its oil wealth, the country’s residents enjoy a high standard of living and a well-established system of social services.
