The ground breaking ceremony is on 6th of next month and we still don't have any clues about the design of the new airport. Why is the CAA being so secretive?

Thumbs down Airport Bullshit~!!

U talkin abt the image dude~! Its not only the image.....u have no idea how much that airport means to all the investors out there.....the property around the airport is going in negative of profit....societies like green city, top city, mumtaz city and other are causing a hell lot frustration fer the investors......bastards i dont get y it isnt being inaugurated....no news.....2 days to 6sept n no news at all......

On the other hand CDA has opened up the new sector I-15, which has decreased the land value of all the private societies near Motorway, Jhang Road. If CDA opens up another sector in that area, the investors are doomed~!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Islamabad Airport shelved due to lack of funds

Secy Defense


ISLAMABAD, August 30 The Parliamentary
Secretary Defense, Maj (retd) Tanveer Hussain Syed,
has said that the construction of new Islamabad
Airport was not initiated so far because of
government's lack of funds and promised government's
immediate beginning on the projects as soon as new
funds were available.
While further elaborating on the affairs of PIA and
national aviation scenario in general during "The
Question hour" in the National Assembly session on
Monday, he said that a huge tract of land measuring
about 3179 acres had already been acquired for the
purpose, and its acquisition is being sought with the
help of the Punjab Provincial government.

He also informed the Assembly that PIA grounded about
13 aircraft this year, due to their damaged condition
in various incidents. The National Carrier has leased
about eight aircraft during the past five years,
purchasing seven used and three new aircraft.

In February, two Fokker aircraft were leased from the
Expo Lanka Aviation of Sri Lanka to the tune of U$D28,
000 per month. PIA purchased one aircraft for U$D12,
00,000, and further six G-747 aircraft from Cathy
Pacific Airlines for an additional U$D 62million
package deal.

In further deals, PIA leased six Airbus aircraft at
the rate of U$D 1,82,000 per annum, for a period of 10
years. It has purchased further 3 new Boeing 777
aircraft for U$D 35 from the company.

He also informed the House that the government is
contemplating two new airports at Islamabad and
Gwadar. The later is being planned at about 35
kilometers from Zero Point junction at Garandani,
Gwadar.

Speaking on the occasion, the federal Minister for
Law, Mr. Wasi Zafar elaborated that Human Rights
Relief Funds had depleted without being properly
utilized. The amount in question was about Rs.
1500,000, which were way short than the original
requirement. He said that the Prime Minister has been
apprised of the situation and demand for increase has
been initiated.

He informed that during the year 2002-03 about 243
suffering people have been relieved from these funds.
He also informed the House that about ten officials of
the Ministry of Law availed official foreign tours,
during the past four year.

Had the govt been serious about the Airport, they could've raised the required funds by announcing another phase of DHA
Its sad how they always come up with the same excuse for things that really matters - I remember the govt had announced 5 crore rupees only when some parts of Sindh were flooded... whereas a 5-marla commercial plot in DHA Lahore costs around 8 crore... its sad really!
