First trial flight at Islamabad new airport today



ISLAMABAD April 7 (TNS): The long wait is over….. the first trial flight at the new Islamabad airport will take place at 1 pm on Saturday.

The trial will help the government and the aviation authorities to assess and decide on the regular operations of flights at the new airport.

The new airport is expected to start regular operations from April 20. The construction work on the airport is almost done and the aviation authorities said that they want to ensure that everything is immaculately in place before the actual operations begin.

The mega project was hit by delays and cost escalation but the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz took it as a top priority and consistently worked on the new state-of-the-art airport, which has cost over Rs70 billions.
