Qatar Telecom (Qtel) has been awarded a contract to provide telecoms services at the new USD$11 billion Doha Airport scheduled to open in December, the former monopoly said.

Qtel was one of 15 companies invited to bid for the contract, including Vodafone Qatar, an airport official told reporters on the sidelines of a news conference.

Qtel said it had spent 37 million riyals (USD$10.2 million) so far on building the airport's telecoms infrastructure.

Company and airport officials did not give the total value of the contract for the telecom services at the airport which will eventually accommodate 50 million passengers annually.
