The QCAA added that aircraft movement recorded in the country last month increased 14.3 percent year-on-year, to 18,762 flights, up from 16,411 in April 2022. 

Visitors from GCC countries contributed significantly to the growth in tourist arrivals in Qatar in April, making up 38 percent of total arrivals, with 164,410 people, a surge of 207.4 percent from 21,900 passengers in April 2022.
