Doha airport advisory for hassle-free travel (Gulf Times 24 June 2010)

Post by rizi the doll on 2010-06-24, 07:53

Doha International Airport has issued guidelines, ahead of the summer holiday rush, under which only travelling passengers will be given access to the departure terminal to avoid check-in hall congestion.
Doha International Airport said it is reinforcing a number of measures aimed at helping passengers make their journey as smooth as possible.
To avoid unnecessary delays, passengers have been advised to adhere to a number of strict guidelines relating to airport access, baggage and check-in.
In line with international guidelines, no individual piece of checked baggage exceeding 32kg will be accepted. Passengers must ensure each item of checked baggage is kept below 32kg before arriving at the airport, otherwise they will be asked to repack them or items will not be accepted, airport authorities said.
All checked baggage must be X-ray screened at the entry point to the departure terminal before passengers proceed to the check-in area.
Individual pieces of hand baggage must not exceed 7kg and kept within the ‘55cm x 38cm x 20cm’ dimension guidelines. Any liquids, gels or aerosols being carried in hand baggage must be in bottles of no-more than 100ml each, otherwise these will be confiscated at the security check point.
Passengers are also advised to seal these items in transparent plastic bags measuring no more than ‘20cm x 20cm’ before placing them in their hand baggage. Plastic reusable bags are available at the airport, in case passengers require these.
The Doha International Airport has set up a dedicated number (4656347) to assist customers.
Doha International Airport chief executive officer Akbar al-Baker said the measures were being reinforced for safety and security reasons and in the interests of all passengers.
“We are entering the busy summer holiday season and it is important for travellers to be responsible and understanding of the procedures in place to make their travel experience as safe and comfortable as possible from the moment they arrive at the airport,” al-Baker said.
“We urge passengers travelling out of Doha International Airport to adhere to the strict guidelines to avoid unnecessary congestion and delays. Overweight baggage is a safety concern for our baggage handlers, hence the importance for all passengers to keep within the controlled limitations.
“Travelling can be a stressful experience, but we want to ensure it is as smooth as possible and hassle free for all passengers flying on any airline in and out of Doha International Airport.” Passengers were also advised to arrive at the airport well in advance of their flight departure time. Check-in counters close 60 minutes prior to flight departures.
“And to avoid any further delays, passengers must have valid travel documents comprising ticket, passport and visas to their final destination, where necessary,” al-Baker said.

Seperkara lagi :

Dulu-dulu siapa yg ada saman yg belum dibayar tak akan dilepaskan masa kat Immigration counter. So, kena keluar settlekan saman baru boleh depart. Tak tau la sekrg ni masih berlaku lagi ke tidak. Ada sesiapa yg ada pengalaman ?
