Qtel was one of 15 companies invited to bid for the contract, including Vodafone Qatar, an airport official told Reuters on the sidelines of a news conference.
Qtel said it had spent 37 million riyals ($10.2 million) so far on building out the airport’s telecoms infrastructure.
Company and airport officials did not give the total value of the contract for the telecom services at the airport which is slated to eventually accommodate 50 million passengers annually. ($1 = 3.6411 Qatari riyals) (Reporting by Regan Doherty and Matt Smith; Editing by Firouz Sedarat)
