thats because each passenger is allowed maximum 25 people not more to get picked up... and they have nothing to do at the airport so end up staring....

actually there was a rather obese guy from china coming out of the airport once and like 1000 people were staring at him and pointing like they are in a circus ring... not sure when the staring mentality will end at the airports

Lol. Folks here don't know about expansion project. Expansion project included a new terminal not just a new car park. I doubt we ll see a new terminal even after 5 yrs.

That plan was never even finalized to begin with by the previous government. It was still in pretty early stages CAA hadn't signed off on anything. The discussion has mostly been about the new car parking for the past few months.

And honestly, even a new Terminal is not going to save this airport. It's better to just squeeze as much life as we can out of this terminal for next few years and plan a newer, bigger airport towards the south west like the old plans in the next decade if air traffic picks up.

Also, the old parking lot was severely inadequate and Parking was always a problem at the airport. The new parking easily has at least twice the capacity of the old one though it probably won't be fully utilized since air traffic in Lahore still isn't that much.
