Any information if the new terminal building will have passenger loading bridges (I am not sure about the correct term) or old style stairs system?

PM performs ground breaking of modern terminal at Multan airport

Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on Sunday performed the ground-breaking of a new passenger terminal at Multan airport here. The Rs 4.5 billion project’s first phase i.e upgradation of the runway from 9,000 feet to 10,500 feet besides apron is in final stage of completion at a cost of Rs 1.8 billion to ensure operations of direct flights between Multan and European and other destinations. At least two bays will be available for wide-body aircraft such as A340, B777, B747 and cargo planes.
The modern passenger terminal and allied facilities are part of the phase two which will be completed in two years to transform the facility into the most modern and state-of-the-art international airport to ease the discomfort being faced by passengers.
Out of Rs 4.5 billion (US$ 72.9 million), Rs 3.5 billion were being contributed from the ADP of CAA and the rest of Rs 1 billion were arranged by the federal government.
Minister for Defence Production Sardar Abdul Qayyum Khan Jatoi, PM’s advisor on IT Sardar Latif Khan Khosa, Defence Secretary and chairman CAA board Lt-Gen Syed Athar Ali and Air Commodore Junaid Amin were present in the ceremony.
While addressing a big gathering of people at the local airport, the Prime Minister said the project would encourage tourists to visit the historically important city of Multan. Foreigners who wished to visit Multan due to its historical significance and cultural heritage will get comfortable travelling facilities by virtue of this project, he added.
The Prime Minister said it would benefit people of southern Punjab including Shorkot, DG Khan, Jhang, Muzaffargarh, Mianwali and others.
Multan is also known for its agriculture production like cotton, mango, citrus, vegetables and wheat and the facility will ensure direct access for its value added agriculture products to lucrative foreign markets, the PM said. It will help enhance exports of fruits, vegetables and other products and ensure significant contribution to improving the national economy.
It will also benefit the textile sector and promote tourism, Gilani observed.
The existing terminal building of Multan airport was built in many phases starting from a single room and now comprises arrival lounge, departure lounge, briefing area, concourse hall, state lounge and VIP lounge. However, this facility became completely inadequate even for existing level of air traffic i.e B737 that prompted the government to upgrade it on modern lines and in accordance with international standards.
Airliners like Air Blue, Emirates Airlines, Lufthansa and others are intended to introduce direct flights from Multan to Dubai, Abu-Dhabi, London, Gulf states and Saudi Arabia, a news letter quoted Civial Aviation Authority officials as saying.
The width of runway was increased up to 150 feet with 25 feet shoulders on each side upgrading it to category E suitable for Boeing 747 aircraft.
Multan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI) had been demanding upgradation of the airport for the last many years and the present government took it seriously and released sizable funding to transform the airport into the most modern international airport of Pakistan.
