New Arrivals Terminal for Doha

A SEPARATE stand-alone facility has been added to the terminal complex at Doha International Terminal (DIA) in Qatar to handle all international inbound passengers.  It is situated on the C-ringroad between the VIP roundabout and the Ras Aboud flyover, and forms part of a multi-million dollar DIA redevelopment plan prior to the opening of the New Doha International Airport, which is scheduled for next year.
The structure has an increased number of baggage belts, more immigration counters, Duty Free retail shopping, bus and taxi stands, and an enlarged meet and greet area.
Shuttle buses will be provided for passengers who have parked their vehicles at the main terminal – which will be renamed the Departure and Transfer terminal once the expansion work is complete.  It is expected to open before the end of this year.
