28. New Doha International Airport
With the ongoing
expansion of Qatar Airways and the general growth in air traffic throughout the region, Qatar needs a far larger airport.
The new international airport is being built on a 22 sq km site just a few kilometres east of the city’s existing airport and will have six times as much capacity. When complete, it will be able to handle 50 million passengers a year, along with 2 million tonnes of cargo and 320,000 aircraft landings and take-offs.
The project will be developed in three phases, with 40 per cent of the work being carried out on land reclaimed from the sea.
Qatar has one of the fastest-growing economies and, with 25 trillion cubic metres of natural gas, is home to the world’s fourth-largest gas reserves
