Plans to launch valet parking at HIA
Frequent fliers would soon be able to benefit with the valet parking facility that the Hamad International Airport plans to introduce this year.
According to a report in The Peninsula, an official of the airport has revealed that they are “in the process of negotiating with some companies to introduce a few more services such as valet parking”.
At present, HIA offers two types of parking facilities – a short-term parking and a long-term parking. Majority of frequent fliers prefer to drive to the airport rather than hiring a taxi because of the free-parking facility provided to them. However, passengers have complained to the daily about the inconvenience of taking a shuttle bus while handling luggage.
There have been no talks yet about introducing a fee for parking.
