Entering Lahore airport is a night mare. NIGHTMARE.

the routing has been made to go in circles.

the security arrangements do not care how the airport was designed.

Entering the parking lot and exiting is a joke. six lanes merging into two lanes.

Please hire some proper professional to run Lahore airport.

A short sighted waste of funds, the airport is in the middle of the city, they will have to eventually move, so instead of building such a grand terminal they should instead invest in a new properly master planned airport outside the city.

The chaos is when 4-5 flights are leaving together and 1500 passengers are leaving and 9000 relatives are dropping them off.

Here is an idea.

Made a huge drop off area for passengers.

Like 50 canals of paved area with parking lot.

From there you have buses leaving every minute for departures ONLY with passengers.

Like a system they had to take people to embassies in Islamabad.

Only way to end the chaos at departures.
