President to open new airport on April 7

Peshawar

March 25, 2007

ISLAMABAD: President Pervez Musharraf will perform the groundbreaking ceremony of the new Islamabad International Airport near Fateh Jang on April 7. The regional director of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has informed all concerned about the inauguration of the new airport and asked them to make necessary arrangements. The earthwork, mostly filling up of deep ditches, at the site of the new airport is going on apace, which will cost over Rs1 billion. A Pakistani firm has been given the contract. The groundbreaking of the new airport has repeatedly been postponed for different reasons. The CAA acquired the requisite land long time ago and expanded it later to meet the requirements of the first green field airport of Pakistan. An international company will be given the job of building the airport.
