Qatar on track to open new airport

The State of Qatar is set to open its newest airport on 1st April. The Hamad International Airport will be operated by Qatar’s national carrier, Qatar Airways.

The plans and details of the airport were unveiled to 100 airport officials and airline executives in Doha today. The project, that cost nearly £10 billion, will see 12 international commercial airlines flying to Qatar through the new airport from 1st April. Qatar Airways plans to move its entire operation to the new Hamad International Airport, previously called the New Doha international Airport, by the second half of 2013.

Chairman of Qatar’s Civil Aviation Authority, Abdul Aziz Al Noiami, said that “Hamad International Airport will truly be a global showpiece that the State of Qatar will justifiably be proud of... The airlines that we will shortly welcome to Hamad International Airport will make history becoming the first commercial operators of flights to and from the world’s newest aviation hub from April 1.”

“I am delighted to say that we have indeed succeeded in living up to the vision of His Highness The Emir, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani to create a world-class international gateway that will firmly put our country on the global stage,” he added.

From March the airport will be ready to facilitate cargo operations and catering facilities and the airport will be opened to commercial carriers from April. Hamad International Airport will be able to accommodate 28 million passengers a year with plans for that number to go up to 50 million by 2015.
