The first phase of New Doha International Airport (NDIA) in Qatar will open in 2011.

The NDIA, being built at a cost of $14.5bn over 22 million-square-metre site, is the world’s first airport designed to handle large A380s.

The initial capacity of the airport will be 24 million passengers a year, which will be doubled to around 50 million when it is fully functional in 2015, according to gulf-times.com.

The completed sections of the NDIA include two runways measuring 4,850m and 4,250m, a 219,000m² three-story terminal and a cargo facility with a capacity of 750,000t per year.

The first phase will also feature a free trade zone and business park, Qatar Airways headquarters building, 25,000m² of retail space and a suspended monorail to transport passengers through the terminal.
