Qatar delays new terminal opening

Doha is shortly to open a hastily built dedicated arrivals terminal at its existing airport.  The New Doha International Airport, 5km east of the current operation, is now scheduled for completion in 2012, at least three years behind the original schedule.

Features of the new Doha Arrivals terminal include an increased number of baggage belts, more immigration counters, Duty Free retail shopping, bus and taxi stands, and an enlarged meet and greet waiting area for those receiving passengers at the airport.

Frequent shuttle buses will provide passengers who have parked their vehicles at the Main Terminal – which will be renamed the Departure and Transfer terminal – with transport from the Doha Arrivals terminal on their return.

Soon after the new Doha Arrivals terminal becomes operational, work will begin on reconfiguring the existing arrivals terminal into the expanded Departure and Transfer terminal which will accommodate increasing passenger flows. www.qatar-airport.com
