Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar’s gateway to the world, is preparing for an influx of passengers during the Eid al-Fitr holiday period.
The airport is expecting a surge in departing passengers from July 15 to 20 and passengers arriving from July 23 to 25.
In a bid to ensure passengers experience seamless and comfortable travel through the airport, HIA has advised departing passengers to arrive three hours before their flight departure and that check-in will close 60 minutes prior to departure. Qatar Airways and many other airlines operating from HIA offer online check-in facilities.
People who drop off or collect passengers are being advised to use the short-term car park which provides free parking for the first 30 minutes and QR5 per hour thereafter.
Passengers also have the option of parking their vehicles at the airport’s long-term car park which provides customers with 2,540 parking 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.
“Hamad International Airport wishes its passengers and the people of Qatar safe travel and Eid Mubarak,” said Badr Mohammed al-Meer, Chief Operating Officer at Hamad International Airport.
