New Islamabad Airport

Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has appointed Lois Berger, a well known firm of USA, as Management Consultant for the construction of New Islamabad International Airport (NIIA) while the selection of the Design Consultant will be completed by March this year.

Sources said on Monday that CAA has acquired about 30,000 Kanals of land for the construction of New Islamabad International Airport at Fateh Jang and payments have been made to almost all the property owners in different phases.

The sources said that the process of land acquisition for the project began in 1984. This territory falls in district Rawalpindi and Attock.

“The tenders for construction of roads inside the boundary have been floated in media. The work on boundary wall and watch towers is in final stage,” the sources added.

CAA has completed all the homework and preparations for ground breaking ceremony and the project would be completed in four years.

The construction of new airport is the need of the hour as present Islamabad airport cannot accommodate increasing number of domestic and international flights and challenges of modern times.
