Qatar: A new service at HIA which will ease your life
How many times have you stood in long queues, waiting to check in your baggage and get the boarding pass in hand? Qatar Airways is making sure that this becomes a little less of a hassle from now on.
This is because they are working to install more self-service check-in kiosks at the Hamad International Airport (HIA) to make the check-in experience faster and more convenient for passengers, reported Gulf Times.
The new kiosks are expected to enable even more passengers to perform self-check-in and print their own boarding passes. The new kiosks will also feature a self bag-drop facility, reported The Peninsula.
During installation, row 3 will be used for economy class check-in to enable the installation of the additional kiosks.
“We’re dedicated to ensuring that our passengers’ journey is smooth and streamlined — from the moment they purchase their ticket to their arrival at their final destination,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said.
Global aviation industry body International Air Transport Association estimates that by 2020, 80% of global passengers will be offered self-service options throughout their journey, representing an annual savings of up to $2.1bn for the airline industry.
