Qatar's main Hamad International Airport is adding a $10 fee for all passengers departing from the airport, including on connection flights.

The decision, announced on Sunday, comes after the Middle East's busiest airport in Dubai and a smaller one in the nearby emirate of Sharjah also added similar fees earlier this year.

The measure helps boost revenue in Gulf countries following a slump in the price of oil that has impacted their economic growth and limited spending capabilities.

The fee will be added to tickets for travel starting Dec. 1. Children under two-years-old without a seat will be exempted.

The airport, which is home to one of the region's largest airlines Qatar Airways, says the charge will help it to increase capacity and invest in new infrastructure and technology.
