The airport opening date is constantly being pushed back, I have to admit that I'm not optimistic of a Q1 2018 opening.

Another point, will people actually use the Metro to get to airport? Can't see expats like myself using the metro to get to the airport. Also will the daewoo coach network be linked to the airport?

Well I dont think Metro is going to be used that much for airport. It will benefit those however, living in newly populated sectors of Islamabad. Do you think in Pakistani culture, it would be looked as good that someone dear to you is coming from abroad after years and you go to receive them using public transport, when you have your own car. Ever see those from far areas coming in wagons to receive their beloved ones.

Daewoo will surely launch a link service to new airport. They are currently in ideal location to link it (located almost at entrance to motorway), out of main city crowd.

Caution sign for keeping low beam is dangerous as hell. Why the hell the road is constructed in such way?? Pakistanis can't even inhale oxygen without high beam!!

I will, definitely. Why to bother ppl at late hours. Since introduction of Uber/Careem in Isb, i use these for pick and drop from the airport.

PIA Wants to Make New Islamabad International Airport as its Hub

CEO PIA Dr. Musharraf Rasool Cyan said the new Islamabad airport could be the new hub Pakistan desperately needs as it looks to boost tourism after losses due to terrorism, and a precarious security situation turned away local as well as foreign tourists.

“We want to make (the new) Islamabad airport a hub,” Cyan said, adding the airport would cater to passengers travelling from Europe, Africa as well as China and Asia Pacific countries.

“If we find it appropriate, we would improve connectivity (through code sharing) with other airlines,” he said.

The PIA chief executive said the national carrier – for long a burden on Pakistan’s fiscal operations – would play a major role in determining the success of the new Islamabad airport. “It has been observed that airports and airlines are grown side by side … PIA would remain the key airline for Islamabad, which would remain only a terminal destination for foreign airlines,” he said.

These days, PIA is developing its office and booth at the airport with a recently extended credit line of Rs13.5 billion from commercial banks and backed by state sovereign guarantee.

The pace this airports construction and opening is progressing, most of the equipment will be completely obsolete by the time this airport opens.
