The new arrivals terminal at the Doha International Airport (DIA) will open to passengers on December 19. The last flight operating through the existing arrivals area in the airport’s main terminal will be Emirates flight EK841 from Dubai, scheduled to land at DIA at 08:30 local time. Passengers on subsequent flights arriving at DIA will be directed to the new terminal where all arrival formalities, including immigration and baggage collection will be conducted. The first flight operating through the new arrivals terminal will be Qatar Airways flight QR133 from Kuwait, scheduled to touch down at DIA at 11:30 local time (on December 19). Access to the new facility is through C-Ring Road between VIP roundabout and Ras Aboud flyover, Doha International Airport has said in a release. Travellers and those receiving passengers arriving into Qatar by air are advised to take note of the changes. Passengers who have parked their vehicles at the main terminal will be offered a free shuttle service to transport them back to the car park on their return to Qatar. The existing arrivals area will be renamed Departures and Transfers Terminal from December 19. Following the opening of the arrivals terminal, work will begin on expanding the Departures and Transfers Terminal to provide larger check-in and transfer areas, as well as additional boarding gates and other amenities. The expansion will facilitate the predicted growth in passenger traffic through Doha International Airport while the country prepares its state-of-the-art New Doha International Airport (NDIA), located 4km east of the existing airport.
