As a part of its preparations for the expected increase in passenger traffic this year and to preserve the security and safety of all, Hamad International Airport (HIA) has announced that between the hours of 10 am to 12 nn on 13th June and 3 pm to 6 pm on 14th June 2022, it will activate a trial at the arrivals and departures curbside gates.

Access to the arrival and departure curbsides will be restricted during the trial – accessible to authorized vehicles only. Authorized vehicles include limousines and taxis (Mowasalat) and those with Qatar Airways First and Business Class passengers. Passengers and customers will have access to free two-hour parking at the short-term car park during the trial period, with a free-of-charge porter service also available to assist departing travellers at the car park.

For drop-offs and pick-ups, passengers are also asked to use the short-term parking facilities at the airport. If passengers and customers exceed the two-hour grace period, payments are advised to be made at the payment machines located inside the terminal, in order to avoid delays or inconvenience.

HIA offers passengers various transport options that seamlessly connect them between the airport and the city. The bus pavilion, taxi pavilion, metro station, car parking, car rental and limousine services are all conveniently located within walking distance from the airport’s arrivals and departures hall. As always, HIA staff will be available to assist passengers round the clock.
