Quetta Airport Terminal Building to be Expanded & Renovated

Post by Abbas Ali » Fri Oct 03, 2014 12:05 am

Construction of a new runway and new terminal building of Quetta International Air Port will start in 2015, according to statement of Director General Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

Probably existing Runway 13L/31R of the airport will be re-constructed instead of construction of a completely new runway.

During my last trip from UET - KHI ......Work has been already started approx a month ago, domestic departure lounge has been closed & renovation / construction is ON at the site, International departure lounge is being used for domestic departures.

Regarding Runway 31R/13L construction will be started soon, as many people were talking as construction of runway will be started then only ATR will be operating for Quetta.

If any update please share.

Why the PAF officer, presumably Base Comd, PAF Samungli is in flying coveralls. Service dress code and etiquette require him to be in appropriate uniform while receiving head of state.
