CAA To Upgrade Multan Airport
KARACHI: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has earmarked Rs 4.5 billion for the development of Multan International Airport (MIA), aiming to attain international status through this upgradation project.

Director General CAA, Farooq Rehmatullah said this while addressing a press conference here on Wednesday. Out of total allocated budget, CAA will expend Rs 3.5 billion from its Annual Development Programme (ADP) budget whereas the government of Pakistan would finance the remaining one billion rupees.

Highlighting recent developments on the ongoing upgradation process, the DG CAA said that the development projects are presently being made to facilitate all domestic and international passengers at the Multan airport. He elaborated that the project encompasses two important phases, i.e. expansion of the terminal building (phase – I) and upgradation of the airside facilities (Phase – II). Moreover, it was also mentioned that 43 acres of land has been acquired for the terminal building, is being given free of cost by the Pakistan Army to CAA whereas the Pakistan Air Force has also allowed the extension of runway on its land.

Regarding the completion time of the project, Farooq Rahmatullah said that following the tender documentation which is expected to be completed by January 2008, airside work for the airport project is expected to commence from April 2008 with an expected completion time of 36 months.

PIA Multan Earns Over Rs 1bn In 2007
MULTAN: PIA Multan earned more than Rs one billion during 2007, said District Manager Bashiruddin here on Friday. Talking to APP he said this became possible only due to team efforts of the entire station staff. He said all eight Fokker planes have been replaced with new seven French ATR aircrafts that are more comfortable and safe. He said it was a matter of utmost satisfaction for the whole nation that the European Union had lifted all its restrictions on PIA flights because the latter had upgraded its aircraft and airbuses befitting their high requisite standard.

Bashiruddin said when he took charge of this office in 2004 the Multan station’s annual revenue stood at Rs 636 million, which had now risen to Rs 1.09 billion. He said at the moment the PIA was operating two flights a week for Dubai and from February 3 the number would rise to three. He said it was a prized route, which had a greater potential for PIA.

The district manager PIA said that the Multan station now surpassed Peshawar, Quetta and Faisalabad in terms of revenue. He said international, domestic and cargo services would further improve if the Multan Airport expansion plan is implemented. He said apart from ATR planes seven new Boeing 777 aircrafts had been inducted into the PIA fleet increasing its strength to 38. Bashiruddin said after expansion of the airport, mango and other fresh fruit export could increase manifold, earning robust forex for the exchequer.

To a question the DM said after the envisaged expansion wide-bodied aircraft would be able to land at and take off from Multan. He said direct flights from Multan to Jeddah for Hajj and Umrah pilgrims would generate more revenue besides facilitating a comfortable journey to the people of this region. The District Manager PIA said a lot of business activity would take place and new vistas of job opportunities would be opened up in case the Multan Airport is upgraded and turned into an international facility.

Work On Multan Airport Upgrade To Start In June
By Saeed Akhtar Baloch

LAHORE (April 11 2008): Work on the upgrade of Multan Airport is expected to begin in June this year and the first phase will be completed by 2010, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) sources told Business Recorder.


The Project Will Be Completed In Two Phases: in the first phase, expansion of runway, taxi-way and apron will be carried out at an estimated cost of Rs 1.8 billion; while the second phase includes construction of a new terminal building and the allied facilities.

The sources said that PC-I for the first phase has been approved and all necessary arrangements have also been finalised by the CAA. "We are facing certain problems in acquisition of land from the army, therefore, it is hard to give time-frame for completion of the second phase," the sources disclosed. They, however, pointed out that negotiations for this purpose were continuing between the CAA high-ups and the GHQ officials to settle the issue shortly.

About total cost of the project, the sources said that the projected cost was Rs 4 billion, but was likely to rise. They also pointed out that the CAA would meet the total cost of the project thorough its own resources.

About the present facilities at the airport, they said that the existing runway had the landing facility for small aircrafts such as B737 while the new runway will have the landing facility for wide-bodied aircraft too. The sources further said: "After the completion of the project, we will be able to serve public and cater to the increasing air traffic in a better way."

They said that so far six flights are being operated from Multan to Dubai while after the project is completed, the frequency of operations will definitely increase. Regarding plan of shifting the airport to some other place, the sources said that due to unavailability of required land, it has been dropped.
