Back-to-back arrival of four Umrah flights has created severe traffic jam of vehicles trying to enter Lahore Airport's car park, according to Dunya News channel. The overloaded car parking system/area is causing inconvenience to people.

I haven't seen any work at Lahore Airport under the Expansion Project banner, had my flight yesterday and Airport building and surroundings were as they were before.

^ I think because still it's in the stage of bids invitations and hiring of directors/personnel for the project.

Will be sad to see airport's well-maintained park/green area becoming part of the expanded terminal building project. The gardeners had done excellent work in maintaining the greenery.

I think the new car park will be constructed on existing green area and the current car park area will become part of the expanded terminal building.

Seems in the first stage the new car park will be constructed and after it becomes operational the current car park area will be closed for the construction of portion of terminal building expansion to be built in that area without causing too much inconvenience to passengers/visitors.

Karachi Airport needs modernization as well. It hasnt been touched since 90s. They should have started work in KHI first. Lahore airport did get a expansion in 2000s.

One of the Unfortunate reality for Karachi Airport is that, "It's not in Punjab region"
Fortune favours brave.
