Doha International Airport prepares for increased traffic
Due to increased passenger traffic at Doha International Airport (DIA) during the upcoming summer holidays, passengers travelling at peak times of the day are advised to arrive at the airport at least four hours before their flight to avoid unnecessary delays.
With schools already beginning to break up for the summer holidays, the airport anticipates a very busy travel period over the next few weeks.
Passengers flying with Qatar Airways will depart from Terminal A. Those flying with one of over 25 international airlines will depart from Terminal B.
Doha International Airport will have additional staff in the departures and arrival terminals and open more check-in counters to reduce queues, ensuring passengers continue to enjoy a pleasant experience at the airport.
To help reduce traffic congestion and delays for passengers in front of the departures and arrival terminals, it is advisable for well-wishers to park in the short term car park.
Passengers are also encouraged to use the web check-in facility provided by Qatar Airways and most other airlines before departing for the airport. The web check-in service enables passengers to check-in between 24 and 48 hours prior to their scheduled flight departure time depending on the airline. Check-in can be done at home, office or anywhere through their mobile devices.
Passengers can also print their boarding passes before arriving at DIA to reduce their check-in time upon arrival.
There are three airport lounges for passengers to use at DIA. Two lounges are for Qatar Airways’ Privilege Club frequent flyer members and the Oryx lounge is for passengers travelling First or Business Class with any airline. Entrance to the Oryx lounge is also available to Economy Class passengers at a charge of QR140 per person.
In 2012, passenger figures grew at a rate of 16.87% compared with 15.16% in 2011. DIA catered to more than 21 million passengers during 2012 and the number of passengers passing through DIA is expected to grow significantly in 2013.
