After many delays and design inaccuracies, the government has launched an expansion of the airport from 9 gates to 15 which was the original plan but was to cut down mounting costs. The terminal will be expanded at all three points.

The government has also launched land acquisition for the future expansions as well which amounts to about 600 Acres of additional land. The three planned future expansions see the airport expanding to support additional 5 million (currently 15 million) people per year per expansion. There is also a third runway in the plans which the government is showing interest to implement in advance, clearly a publicity stunt as the current second runway is designated for emergency landing purposes till traffic demands require it.

After much drama, the original access roads plan was approved to be implemented though work hasn't been started yet. The airport expansion is slated to be completed by December 2015, but the completion date is still not confirmed and different sources claim different dates.

The construction of the airport will reportedly be completed at the end of this month while it will be inaugurated fully operational on 14th August (Independence Day) this year.

Proposed Design of Metro Bus Station for the proposed Metro Bus line connecting the capital's metro system with the airport. The PM has shown eagerness towards its completion along with the airport launch on the independence day (August 14th).

If it's completed then why wait 6 months to open it? The current airport needs to be replaced now.

The buildings are complete, furnishings are underway and other systems like baggage, flight and radar systems are being placed. They will then undergo testing etc.

The access roads are also not complete. Both links (cargo and passenger) are under construction. Now a metro bus link has also been added.

The airport is stated to open on 14th August and we're still not sure on the name. Latest reports suggest it'll be named "Quaid e azam intl airport "
