New Doha Airport Renamed Hamad International

Qatar’s New Doha International Airport will be renamed Hamad International Airport when the much delayed hub finally opens in the second half of 2013.

The announcement was made in a statement by Abdul Aziz Al Noaimi, chairman of the Qatar Civil Aviation Authority and was confirmed by a spokesperson from Qatar Airways, the operator of the airport and main customer.

The US$15.5bn airport missed its most recent scheduled opening date last month and has now been put back to the second half of 2013 as a legal battle ensues between airport authorities and a major contractor.
