Qatar Airways short transit and luggage issue

Hi all

We have booked a flight from Paris to Singapour with Qatar Airways.

Unfortunately for us, the second flight from Doha to Singapour has been rescheduled and the transit now only lasts 1 hour and 50 minutes.

Is there enough time for the luggage to follow ?

What if we don't get our luggage on arrival in Singapour ?

The problem is that we are leaving Singapour for Perth, Australia, the next day, with another company. If necessary, will the luggage be transfered to Perth, even if we are using a different company ?

Thank you for your feedback

If your onward flight from Doha is of Qatar Airways and is under a single booking or PNR, then you don't have to worry about the baggage. Your baggage will be automatically transferred through to your final destination. Hamad Airport handles thousands of transit passengers everyday and they are well equipped to handle the baggages within the transit time. 1hr 50 mts is good enough.

Exceptionally, if your baggage doesn't reach Singapore, normally the baggage will reach on the subsequent flight and some airlines will deliver it to your destination. Qatar Airways say the delivery of delayed baggage is subject to local customs regulations. Hence, only the Airlines will be able to give you a definite reply.
