Many transit passengers travelling through Doha’s Hamad International Airport (HIA) often want to leave their luggage at the airport so they can visit the city without carrying all their bags.

Like most international airports Doha Airport also has lockers for storing passenger baggage. However, the official luggage storage at Doha Airport has been temporarily suspended. The good news is that there is a private facility offering luggage storage service inside the Doha Airport premises.

In this article, we will discuss the facility for luggage storage at Doha Airport, including the location, storage rates, and how to book in advance.

Luggage Storage at Doha Airport

Currently, the Hamad International Airport storage lockers are not in operation due to health and safety concerns. However, Tawfeeq Travel offers luggage storage at their Travel Hub inside the airport.

Some lounges inside the Airport offer luggage storage facilities for a short period. However, these are mainly for smaller handbags and you cannot leave them there if you exit the airport.

In June 2022, leading travel management company Tawfeeq Travel opened a “Travel Hub” at the Hamad International Airport Metro Station.

According to the management, the Travel Hub at HIA offers Qatar’s first baggage drop-off and storage solution to travellers. Besides it is also serving as a retail outlet for travellers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I store my luggage at Doha airport?

The storage lockers at Hamad International Airport are currently not in operation due to health and safety reasons. However, Tawfeeq Travel is offering a luggage storage facility at their Travel Hub inside the Airport.

Should I collect my luggage if I am transiting under the same booking?

The luggage will usually be “checked through” if you booked the flights together at the same time. You will probably have to pick up your luggage and check it in again if you booked them separately, especially if they are on different airlines.
