A meeting has been called by Prime Minister Imran Khan today (Monday) to discuss an offer by the Qatari emir to upgrade five major airports in Pakistan.

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has offered to upgrade the airports to make them into modern, international standard facilities. He has offered Qatar’s monetary and technical support.

The government has to decide the way in which this offer will be fulfilled.

Monday’s meeting will be attended Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan and officials of the Civil Aviation Authority. It is also expected to discuss the outsourcing of airport service contracts to foreign contractors.

    Much Needed. Specially Karachi either needs a new airport or a major upgrade of the existing. The existing airport is almost 3 decades old and the design is out of sync with modern airport requirements. Ideally Karachi should get a new airport so that existing operations at Jinnah terminal continue without hindrance.

    If really want to see ISB airport. Go see their toilets. The toilets doors are falling apart. Mirrors look worn out. And, if you are overweight person, if you may stuck inside. You cannot take your belongings inside the toilets.
