Global Guidelines on Carriage of Liquids, Gels and Aerosols in Hand Baggage
Doha, QATAR – Effective June 1, 2007, and in line with new global security guidelines issued by the International Civil Aviation Organisation, all passengers flying Qatar Airways and other airlines from Doha International Airport – or transiting through Doha – will be subjected to restrictions on the carriage of certain items in their hand baggage.
New security screening measures at Doha International Airport mean all liquids, gels, pastes and aerosols must be placed in re-sealable transparent plastic bags of certain dimensions.
Key features of the new guidelines are :
Smoking is strictly prohibited in the airport except in dedicated smoking rooms in the transit, departure halls of the ground and first floor. There are also smoking rooms in the Premium terminal, which caters to Qatar Airways First and Business Class passengers. There is also a dedicated smoking area in the Arrivals Terminal situated within the arrival baggage reclaim hall. This is in compliance with the Qatari Law number (20) year 2002 which states that smoking is strictly prohibited outside the designated areas and an offender shall be charged 150 USD or imprisoned for up to 6 months or both penalties.
