The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has declared Gwadar International Airport open for night landing operations. Airlines and aviation businesses have been given instructions to start these operations in September. However, overnight aircraft parking will not be allowed.
Federal construction Minister Ahsan Iqbal gave the CAA instructions in March to finish all airport construction projects by September 2023. Additionally, he asked for a plan of action for the execution and implementation of the remaining duties within three days.
China and the Pakistan Aviation Authority (PAA) are working together to build the airport as part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). For both internal and international flights, the ATR 72, Airbus (A-300), Boeing (B-737), and Boeing (B-747) will all be able to land at the New Gwadar International Airport (NGIA). The “largest” airport in Pakistan is expected to open for international travel in September of this year.
