Is the New Islamabad International Airport planned to be commissioned on 14th August 2017 even after disqualification of NS or there is any change in schedule?

It's been delayed till December. However, I believe when it opens in Dec, it will be fully operational with commercial flights arriving and departing, it will probably be complete by mid-September and go through a number of testing phases before opening to the public.

Rest assured, the 14th August date was bogus and just set by NS so he could open the airport while he was still holding office.

According to PTV News, the opening of New Islamabad International Airport on August 14 is not possible due to incomplete link roads.

Ninety-seven percent of airport construction work has been completed.

The airport is now expected to become operational in December 2017.
