According to a news channel, the number of boarding bridges will be increased to twenty-two.

Presently the airport has seven boarding bridges.

I guess the current government would like to see expansion project completed on fast pace before next general elections due in year 2018.

Personally I think that they should continue with the Mughal theme instead

What are the plans about Runway extension and upgradation of 36L?

Design is not finalized but approval has been granted. This is the time to plan Lahore airport for next 20 years at least. I am. More interested to know about the upgradation of Runways as well as design so airport can cater larger birds like A380s.

The biggest problem of Lahore airport is reaching the airport, parking the airport, dropping the passenger and picking the passenger.

Right now getting to the airport for the 2 am flights is a chaos. The security arrangements obviously not in place when the airport was designed creates bottle necks for traffic and creates long traffic jams entering the airport.

The picking up the passengers is another nightmare with 10 family members to pick up a single passenger usually 2,000 people receiving 350 Emirates passengers.

The parking lot is another jungle with taxis and rent a car mafias occupying the most precious parking spaces and entire lanes blocked off and people picking up passengers park far from the terminal building.

Many times for the late night flights and early morning departures the traffic is blocked all the way down the the bridge, with people dropping off their passengers and cars blocking the double lane road.

I have walked hundreds of meters with luggage to when dropping off my son on the 9.30 am PK757.

If Lahore airport is to expand three times, please improve the access to the airport, the parking at the airport and the drop off at the airport.

A new car park will be constructed in vacant land near existing car park.
