Hamad International Airport (DOH) has introduced dedicated screening lanes for families with younger children transferring through the airport

The dedicated family lanes will reduce wait times at security checkpoints and provide staff assistance to aide families with their personal belongings. This initiative reflects the airport's commitment to minimising stress and wait times, underscoring its dedication to providing a seamless and efficient travel experience for all passengers, it said.

DOH will gather feedback and suggestions for improvement from passengers utilising these dedicated lanes. Following a successful testing phase in the transfer screening area, the facility will be expanded to other security checkpoints.

Hamad International Airport offers a range of facilities designed for travellers with children, among them baby changing rooms and family toilets designed to accommodate children. Young travellers can enjoy play areas, while those seeking relaxation can retreat to one of 17 quiet rooms featuring comfortable recliner seats and subdued lighting.
