Sir Syed Ahmed Airport would have been a much better choice for the name.

Fatima Jinnah is fine aslong as people dont get confused with Jinnah International (Karachi)

Would'nt 'Islamabad International Airport' be fine?

I think Sir Syed's contribution to our muslim subcontinental nation was much more than that of Fatima Jinnah's. He led the way for the muslims during the days of the british rule and reconciled us with the government after the war of Independence had left us vary of the raj. If he hadnt been there, we might have still be lurking wayy far behind.
Fatima Jinnah may have worked for women and provided moral support to the new Pakistan and to Quaid-e-Azam Mr. Jinnah, but I think that the impact of what Sir Syed did was far greater.

Well don't get excited you people. I just read in the newspaper in which the new Defence Secretary has been quoted as saying that not enough funds are there to carry out such a project. Although the PM very keen to start it right away. It also said that ground breaking ceremony was expected in the first week of April but it may be delayed now.
What do u think about naming the airport as AYUB KHAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT or LIAQUAT ALI KHAN INTERNATIONAL or may be KING FAISAL INTERNATIONAL.

Well I think "ISLAMABAD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT" IS THE BEST NAME.
But the most important issue here is not the name of the airport, is the project ever going to be started? I am hearing of it since 1999 and not a single step has been taken since then?(This is what I think)
