Hamad International opens after delays and shows great promise
from By Matt Falcus
Hamad International Airport finally opened its runways to flights recently — more than a year after its first attempt at a soft launch was canceled. Built to eventually replace the aging and inadequate Doha International Airport, Hamad International welcomed its first flight under a water cannon salute shortly before midday. Like most of the neighboring Gulf emirate states, Qatar has experienced a massive growth in aviation as its homegrown airline, Qatar Airways, grew rapidly by offering connecting flights between East and West through its Doha hub.
