Default Hamad Airport Doha opens today

First flight is Fly Dubai at around 11am I understand. Then it should be a full card of 10 LCC's until Qatar Airways takes up residence toward the end of May.

Should be a fun day at work!

I have a flight tonight and by sheer luck I chose a different airport to transit through other than Doha.

Thank you baby Jesus for steering me clear of Qatari airspace tonight.

All went rather well. No nasty's and all peace and quiet in the tower. At least until a call from a paranoid tech at 6:30am had me rushing in to find the problem in question related to the as yet unopen runway!!

At least I can claim the award for first call out

About 20-30 flights a day at the moment, so not exactly busy.
