New Islamabad International Airport to become hub of interconnectivity: Khaqan


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that the New Islamabad International Airport sits at the crossroads to China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and will help becoming a new hub of interconnectivity.

While addressing a ceremony after inaugurating the New Islamabad International Airport near the Federal Capital, the prime minister said that the new facility will also act as a gateway to economic development by employing people and spurring business activities.

The prime minister said that work is underway to give a best public transport system to this airport like elsewhere in the World, so that passengers face no hurdles or delay in their air travel.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that today’s world aviation has become a necessity and more and more people are flying. He said that the government has not only started a number of development projects but also completed the existing ones expeditiously. He said that the extension of Lahore airport will start this month while the projects of Sialkot, Multan and Faisalabad airports have been completed.

The prime minister said that aviation is a dynamic field and if we do not adapt ourselves with the latest trends, we will be left behind. He said that we have adopted open sky policy to give more choices to passengers. He said that Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) should learn from World practices and regulate in such a manner which allows aviation industry to grow and give more choices to passengers by promoting competition. He hoped that the authority will respond to challenges and will adapt accordingly.

Abbasi hoped that new airlines will come into the Country and the existing ones will also expand their reach in order to give air passengers more facilities.
