|Quoting Chootie (Thread starter):|
1) How does one "transit in DOH??" I have checked the airline and airport websites but to little avail. If arriving can you approach a transit desk to receive your onward boarding pass, or do you need to clear immigrations and check in again?
There are 2 possibilities: First you clear immigration ( subject to 100 Qatari Riyal or so) and then you head to Check-In which is just outside the arrivals hall. ( about 50m).
There you clear a security and then head to the very back of the check-in area as there is the Stand-By Check-In located. ( Right side) You will see some staff standing there
2nd is to remain in transit and just go upstairs to the transfer counters or ask any QR
staff where you can check-in as a staff for you connecting flight.
I have done both and every time it worked well. Do not go to the Premium Area or even worse the Premium Terminal as you have no access and they will ask you to leave.
If the transit time is long and you do not clear immigration you can purchase a voucher for the Oryx lounge. ( Advisable to purchase it in advance).
Hope this helps. Do not expect a super " Disney-Like" airport but it is quite ok nowadays with quite some space on the upper floor.
