I think they will have to upgrade runway, taxiway and apron if they want to see Emirates widebody aircraft at Faisalabad Airport.

^ I think A330 with normal passenger/cargo load cannot be used at Faisalabad.

Shaheen Air used A320 for Hajj flights from Faisalabad and I think it means it was not possible for them to use A330 for Hajj flights from Faisalabad.

Emirates used to operate A310 for Peshawar and before phasing out A310 from the fleet Emirates spent money to get Peshawar Airport runway upgraded to enable operations of its A330 and B777 aircraft at that airport.

An interesting mention of LYP :)

http://www.anna.aero/2015/07/15/first-e ... h-triumph/

BTW I have a question in my mind. I think LYP used to have very few international flights, that too during hajj seasons and I don't think there were any other commercial airline operating on international routes for decades. How come with in months FZ, QR and Air Arabia all started their operations from LYP, the potential was always there I guess, were they waiting for someone to break the ice? Same goes for MUX as well but there we can give credit to the up gradation of the Airport.
God Speed........!
