Multan International Airport Up-gradation & Expansion

The CAA of Pakistan has earmarked on a Rs. 4.5 billion project, to upgrade and improve Multan (MBQ) Airport. The plan is to expand the existing Multan (MBQ) airport facility so that wide-bodied aircraft could land and take off for direct international passenger and cargo flights.

The project is designed by Engineering Consultant Int.(Pvt.)Ltd. and the proposed improvements include extension of runway from 9,000 to 11,000 feet, increasing the width of runway to 150 feet with 25 feet shoulders on each side, thus the runway will be upgraded to Category E (Suitable for Boeing 747 aircraft).

Other improvements will include expansion of terminal buildings. The first phase of the work will start in spring 2008. The project consists of 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 completion of the project will allow more frequent flights to international destinations as well as wide body aircraft to operate from the airport.
