New Flight Information Display System At Peshawar Airport
Thursday, May 15, 2008

KARACHI: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has installed an indigenously manufactured Flight Information Display System (FIDS) at the Peshawar Airport.

It has been developed by the CAA in collaboration with the National Engineering and Scientific Commission (NESCOM), said a CAA handout issued here on Wednesday.

The system would provide information about incoming and outgoing flights on nine plasma screens and four LED board to the passengers and visitors.

The system also has the facility of digital signage and infotainment. The digital signage would cater to the requirements of various companies to display their advertisements, where as the space for the infotainment would be utilised for the news and weather updates.

The facility of digital signage would generate reasonable amount of revenue for the CAA.

Such FIDSs have already been installed at the Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad airports by German and Italian companies.

However, to save valuable foreign exchange, the FIDS was developed, which is much cheaper than the one installed by the foreign companies.

A brief introduction of PIA fleet is given below:

BOEING 777
The Boeing 777 family comprises of long-range, wide-body twin-engine airplanes. PIA was the first airline in the world to operate all the three variants of the 777 family: 777-200LR, 777-200ER and 777-300ER, all of them are well loved by PIA's seasoned travelers for their spaciousness and comfort. PIA also holds the privilege of being the launch customer for 777-200LR, one of PIA’s aircraft holds the record for the longest commercial jet flight in aviation history. At present PIA is serving destinations in USA, Canada, UK and Europe through its 777 fleet.

PIA operates two variants of 747 family which includes 747-300 and 747-200 Combi. 747 Combi is so called as it has mixed pax and cargo configuration on the main deck.

Boeing 737
The Boeing 737 is one of the world's favorite narrow-body short/medium haul jet airplane. Amongst its many credits, it has the distinction of being the most ordered and produced commercial airplane of all time and Boeing continues to manufacture its variants, to date. PIA’s 737-300 aircraft mostly serve its domestic and regional routes.

ATR42
This modern technology turbo prop is the latest type inducted in PIA’s fleet. PIA’s fleet of seven ATR42-500 aircraft is configured in comfortable two class seating arrangement.

Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore, is ranked among the world's leading airports in service performance, a latest survey by Singapore Airlines revealed.


The intensive Service Performance Survey (SPS) was conducted recently by Singapore Airlines to assess the quality of service standards being maintained by the airports within the region.

The survey entailed a stringent evaluation of airports on the basis of lounge facilities offered in terms of general airport condition, ambience, and comfort of lounge as well as overall efficiency of the airports' lounge staff with respect to their level of friendliness and assistance extended to all travellers and visitors of the airports.

Airports were assessed and evaluated by Singapore Airlines for the Service Performance Survey (SPS) included 18 leading airports from all across the world including UAE's Abu Dhabi Airport, Saudi Arabia's Jeddah Airport, United Kingdom's Campbell Town Airport, Pakistan's Allama Iqbal International and Jinnah International Airports, India's Bombay, Calcutta, Chennai and Delhi airports, Sri Lanka's Colombo Airport, South Africa's Cape Town and Johannesburg Airports alongwith Bangladesh's Dhaka Airport and the Malee Airport.

Following a rigorous scrutiny and evaluation of these airports by the representatives from the Singapore Airlines, Pakistan's Allama Iqbal International Airport, and the Lahore airport secured the first position with a score ranging from 87 percent to 100 percent in the different fields outlined by the airline as part of the survey criteria. "In an age where knowledge, innovation and advancements have paved the way for unprecedented growth and opportunities, adaptation to change was a critical element that would help us keep pace with the changing dynamics of airport management," said CAA director general.

We recognize the need to ensure effective and an efficient management of our airports in line with the global benchmarks and, therefore, feel great pride over this achievement, he added.

Following is the overall ranking of lounge facilities:

1) Lahore, Pakistan 94.44

2) Jeddah, Saudia Arabia 79.19

3) Cape Town, South Africa 74.94

4) Male, Maldives 69.49

5) Campbell Town, Australia 68.48

6) Colombo, Sri Lanka 67.74

7) Karachi, Pakistan 64.14

8) Istanbul, Turkey 61.87

9) Kolkata, India 61.14

10) Delhi , India 59.57

11) Johannesburg, South Africa 56.38

12) Dubai, UAE 56.17

13) Chennai, India 52.79

14) Abu Dhabi 52.77

15) Dhaka, Bangladesh 40.28

16) Bombay, India 36.22

I've the same question as you. This is all that I could find:

CAA Business Plan 2008-2012

Envisages an increase in air traffic from 17 million passengers /annum to 33 million passengers / annum, an increase of 94%.

LINK: http://www.caapakistan.com.pk/downlo...6_NOV_2007.pdf

And a forumer called SaimuRathka, told us that the top 3 Int'l Airports (Karachi, Lahore & Islamabad) have about 14 million of the 17 million air traffic passengers of Pakistan.
