Doha Airport Bag Drop 10 hours before flight

Doha Airport Bag Drop 10 hours before flight

  1. Daniel S

    I’ll be flying Qatar Airlines out of Doha Next Friday in Qsuites. My flight doesn’t depart until 1:00 AM… However, my friend has a flight that departs about 10 hours before mine. Would I be able to drop my bag off at check-in ~10 hours before my flight and enter the terminal? Or would I need to wait the usual 3 hours before the flight. My thought process was that since it’s a hub they’ll be able to accept my bag earlier for the flight. I’m able to do this with Delta as a Gold Medallion member.

    Never been there so I can’t say for sure but since it’s their hub I can’t see why it would be an issue. Have you reached out to the airline on Twitter? I have no idea how active they are on that channel but it can’t hurt.

  4. Daniel S

    yes, i reached out to them on twitter but they haven’t responded quite yet..

  5. Daniel S

    Update, asking on twitter was quite useless… They told me “Qatar Airways recommends you to arrive at the airport 3 hours before departure. Thank you!” This didn’t answer my question… Any additional feedback would be great

    No personal experience on this, but I can’t imagine you have any issue. Doha is Qatar’s hub (and a pretty major one at that) so check in desks should be staffed 24/7.

    Yeah, that’s what I was thinking too. The reason I ask is because I had a similar issue with Turkish Airlines a couple years back where they wouldn’t let me drop bags until 3 hours before departure… and I was flying in J… Just wanted to double check before I head for the airport and and be disappointed. Thanks for the response.

    How did this work out for you? We have a late flight out of Doha tomorrow and we would also like to drop our luggage early.
