HIA: Important tips for travelers during Eid holiday

Hamad International Airport (HIA) has advised passengers departing during Eid Al Adha period to ensure they check in online, arrive three hours prior to their flight and use e-gates (if registered) to avoid queues and continue enjoying comfortable and seamless travel through HIA.

Passengers travelling through HIA are reminded that check-in closes some 60 minutes prior to departure time. During security checks, passengers are requested to ensure that they are not carrying any prohibited items such as liquids, aerosols, and gels and to pack any liquid containers in a clear, re-sealable plastic bag with each being 100ml or less. New baggage wrapping centers are located near row 3 and 10 in the airport.

Electronic items larger than mobile phones need to be removed from bags and placed in trays for X-ray screening.
