Qatar plans to opens its new $14 billion international airport in 2011, Adul Aziz Al-Noaimi, the chairman of the country’s civil aviation authority said on Sunday. The airport will be spread across 22 kilometers, and will have capacity for 24 million passengers and cargo of 1.4 million tonnes a year, he said.
The cost of the project has increased from its original launch in 2004, when the airport’s development was estimated to be about $5.5 billion, says Reuters.
