Interior looks fine. Exterior apron side where the aircraft park looks fine too. The front though is just horrible. Who was the architect behind this debacle. You know back in the day when Lahore Station was being built, the British didn't like the entrance. So they tore it all down and rebuilt the entrance.

Highly suggest something similar for Multan Airport. Looks more like a cargo terminal, than a passenger terminal.

Well,it's a personal choice .I like the way they have been inspired by the design of the tomb of Shah Rukne Alam, which is a beautiful building and thus gives the airport a uniquely Multani flavour without going too overboard with the ethnic overtones (no over the top arches and domes etc) .They still managed to keep the facade modern,sleek and simple...and yet very Multani. ☺

Those big shiny pillars look more like huge traffic cones

Still this airport is a big improvement. Actually looks better than the mughalia darbar at lahore and is certainly better than Peshawar and faislabad airports (they look more like bus stations)

Yep,we all like to abuse PIA constantly (and with some justification too),but in times of need,it's only PIA which comes to the rescue;whether it is transporting the dead free of charge;or evacuating citizens stranded in war zones or in other times of crises.

They should just get a plane for PM office. This is becoming a joke. The gigantic budget of pm office can easily accomodate one. Maybe an a340 like ones with islamic republic of Iran can do.

PIA passengers can now check in online

It seems that the national flag carrier, the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), is finally catching up with the digitalisation process as it announced that passengers would now be able to check in online.

PIA’s official Twitter handle on Thursday tweeted an image saying “Why wait in the line when you can check-in online!”

According to the PIA, the service is currently valid for domestic operations only and that too limited to flights between Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

Online check-in is particularly helpful for those who are travelling without luggage. So, PIA passengers travelling within the country from the aforementioned cities can save time and avoid waiting in queues by checking in for their flights through the airline’s website even before arriving at the airport.

People shouldn't be complaining, since in سفر you're excused from fasting anyway. If you choose to fast, then that's your own prerogative. PIA should continue giving normal meals too.
