Qatar’s new international terminal to open

Doha International Airport is preparing to open before the end of June Terminal B (the old arrivals terminal)  as a dedicated facility for foreign airlines – just in time for the summer holiday rush.  As a result, the check-in area of the existing Transfer and Departures terminal – to be renamed Terminal A – will be used exclusively for Qatar Airways as the national carrier of Qatar continues to expand at a rapid pace.

Designed to greatly enhance the departure experience for travellers leaving Qatar, the major airport upgrade will facilitate the increased passenger traffic through Doha International Airport until the state-of-the-art New Doha International Airport (NDIA) opens in 2012.  The new 2,000sq m large Terminal B, developed on the premises of the former arrivals terminal at DIA, will be entirely dedicated to the over 30 foreign airlines operating services from Doha.  Featured is an enlarged check-in area with 35 counters, including an online check-in lounge, dedicated customer service desk for oversized luggage, currency exchange bureau, ATM machines, and food and beverage outlets. www.dohaairport.com
