Hamad International Airport (HIA) has advised passengers to arrive three hours before their flight departs as the airport is expecting increase in passengers flow during the Eid Al Adha holidays.

The airport is expecting a peak in departing passenger traffic from tomorrow and arriving passenger traffic from September 27 to 30.

It reminded passengers that check-in will close 60 minutes prior to departure.

To save time, Qatar Airways and many other airlines operating from HIA offer passengers online check-in.

The general public who are dropping off or collecting passengers are advised to use the short-term car park which provides complimentary parking for the first 30 minutes and costs QR5 per hour thereafter.

Passengers also have the option of parking vehicles at the airport’s long-term car park which provides customers with 2,540 spaces and a regular shuttle service to the main terminal every 15-20 minutes.

More information about HIA’s parking facilities can be found on its website.

On the occasion of Eid Al Adha, the terminal will be decorated with traditional-themed displays which portray Qatar’s pride in its culture and highlight the significance of the occasion. The airport will also distribute gifts and Arabic delicacies to passengers and will have activities and photo corners for passengers.

“HIA wishes its passengers and the people of Qatar safe travel and Eid Mubarak,” said Badr Mohammed Al Meer, Chief Operating Officer, HIA.
