Already celebrated for its family-friendly amenities and attention to detail, Qatar’s Hamad International Airport is now introducing dedicated security and screening lanes for families with children – in particular, those with younger children – while they transfer through the airport.

The decision has come in line with the Hamad International Airport’s commitment to improving wait times, in an effort to minimise stress and make the travel experience as seamless as possible for all passengers. Doha’s principal airport since its opening 2014, the airport won the title of “World’s Best Airport” in both 2021 and 2022 and “World’s Second-Best Airport” in 2023 among its many accolades, while also having been named “Best Airport in the Middle East” at the SKYTRAX World Airport Awards for the ninth consecutive year in 2023.

In addition to reducing wait times – wherein the goal is for 95% of passengers to wait for less than five minutes to go through security checkpoints and the overall security process – the new dedicated family lanes will also offers staff assistance to help families with their personal belongings.
