Doha airport opening pushed back to June 2013

Qatar Airways has said the opening of the first phase of Qatar's planned $11bn new airport would be delayed until June next year after a contractor was dropped from the project, Reuters has reported. The airport was originally due to open this December. "It is because we asked a contractor to demobilise, because they were falling behind the milestones. It was a unanimous decision by the committee building the airport to appoint another contractor," the airline's CEO, Akbar Al-Baker, said.
