Doha airport to be completed by 2011

May 18 - Doha's new international airport, built at an estimated cost of $14 billion, will be completed by the end of 2011, said Qatar Airways CEO Akbar al Baker has said.

Baker said that the main terminal structure as well as runways are ready and the airport will have a capacity of 24 million passengers in the initial opening phase.
