It was more political decision rather then a cost cutting measure.... Expansion was done atleast 5-7years ago once they give airlines free hand to play at pakistani airports...

What design will selected for upgrade or extension of Lahore international airport...

There is some space left on the left side of lhe airport which can be utilized too i dont know if this is viable but i read some where that increase in population towards 36R cause lots of issues.....
36L side is still open and can be well extended upto 3500 meter runway 60 ft wide so A380 can also be handled..

Redesigning airport is a good thing but there are so many new colonies mushroomed near airport which are troubling in expansion especially installations of Cat3b... Which is pending... What are the major upgrades expected at Lahore airport.?

I don't think entire terminal building is going to be redesigned.

It seems they want to see various designs/shapes of building structure that will extend existing terminal building.

The terminal extension should appear seamless in my opinion i.e. new structure should have exactly same external Mughal style architecture of existing terminal building but with newer/modern interior.

Moving the whole airport from one place to another is very long , time taking and very costly too..take an example of London Heathrow runway 3 plan which was pending from the last 7,8 years and opposition ask to build new airport outskirts of London which was expensive..so their court decide to built 3rd runway near to the 2nd runway by using 800 homes space and accommodate them respectively....all in all our CAA needs to plan for next 25 years minimum...govt also needs to support positively in this regards....

The airport has enough vacant land for extension of existing terminal building from its both sides.

We at Hong Kong built the largest airport of its time in 7 years in the middle of the sea and moved the third busiest airport in the world overnight
