Islamabad To Get New Airport

Wed Apr 23, 2003 8:09 pm

A new site has been been chosen for the Capital's International Airport just outside the city at Tarnol, 3000 acres have been purchased for the purpose. ISB's present airport is actually a Pakistan Air Force base, and serves Ariana Afghan, Emirates, Saudi Arabian, Gulf Air, Qatar Airways, China Xinjiang and British Airways.
.....up there with the best!

No Saif, BA has suspended operations due to security concerns, Kuwait Airways also serve ISB and new new airports are also on the cards for Peshawar, Sialkot which dosent have an airport as yet even thought its the country's export centre, and Gwadar the future port city of Pakistan.
