Qatar-Airways-dropbaggage

This exciting new service gives Qatar Airways’ passengers, who have a pre-paid and non-refundable reservation at The Airport Hotel, the added flexibility of arriving at HIA at their leisure and enjoying the five-star facilities on offer or simply relaxing in their room while they wait for their flight. The Airport Hotel guests can also enjoy the luxury of a dedicated Qatar Airways counter located in the check-in hall where they can drop off their luggage in a relaxed and hassle-free environment. This service will launch today, January 20, 2015.

The advance baggage drop service gives passengers who have an early morning flight the opportunity to check in the night before, have dinner at one of HIA’s sophisticated dining outlets such as Soprafino or Grand Comptoir, and spend the night at the hotel knowing they do not have to wake up hours before their departure.
