With 55% of the multi-level work already finished, the New Gwadar International Airport (NGIA) construction is moving along quickly. Test flights at NGIA will start within the next two months, according to a Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) official.
The NGIA’s overall anticipated construction cost is Rs. 51.284 billion, and installation of contemporary security measures, a key component of the airport, has advanced significantly.
39 hold or hand luggage scanning devices will be installed as part of this, considerably improving the accuracy of passenger screening at the airport.
The NGIA’s completion is anticipated to significantly increase trade between Pakistan and China and act as a catalyst for development on the Gwadar Peninsula. The NGIA is anticipated to be inaugurated on March 23, 2023, which also happens to be Pakistan Day, according to a November 2017 publication.
