Also, similar to the set-up at Karachi airport, the authorities should quickly consider introducing some kind of taxi service at Lahore airport. It's surprising / frustrating that there is no public transport service on offer at one of the country's leading international airports.

Also, 1/3 space of this terminal is taken up by VVIP section. If this is abolished than space issues would improve. I have never seen a VIP or VVIP airport terminals in the west.

I couldn't see any cab service available whatsoever. And I was hanging around the arrivals terminal for almost 2 hours awaiting my own car rental to be dropped off!

Thats to do with bad scheduling more than capacity issues I think.International flights in the middle of the night need to be scheduled at different times rather than all at once which creates this problem.Most of the times I've travelled to the airport domestically from Khi and vice versa I've had no issues,Its the late night international flights that are cramed together which create problems
