Qatar’s new world-class gateway to the world, Hamad International Airport (HIA), announces changes to the short and long term car park facilities.

From Sunday 22 June 2014, the long term car park at HIA will become available for passengers and visitors to use free-of-charge and the short term car park will become payable for all guests. All passengers and visitors using the short term car park from Sunday 22 June 2014 will receive a ticket upon entry which will need to be retained for departure.

Senior Public Relations and Communications Manager at HIA, Abdulaziz Al Mass, said:

As part of the phased opening of Doha’s new aviation hub we are updating and adding further services for passengers and visitors. As parking demand increases we are opening up our long term car park as an extended parking solution to avoid congestion and ensure a seamless and convenient experience for our passengers and visitors. We thank our guests for their continued support and we look forward to welcoming travellers into our world-class gateway to the world very soon.’

The following fees will apply as below:

  • First 30 minutes: Free
  • First hour: QR5
  • Every consecutive hour: QR5
  • Lost tickets: QR35

All payments will have to be processed at the parking payment machines located in the bridge connecting the Passenger Terminal Complex and short term car park prior to reaching the car. Visitors who parked their car in the short term car park before the fees are implemented will be able to leave free-of-charge.

Visitors looking to use the long term car park are advised to leave enough time for the four-minute transfer to the Passenger Terminal Complex. Buses are provided for visitors’ convenience every 15 minutes on the hour.
