In addition, Nusrat, who is also the Aviation Secretary, ordered the competent authorities to renovate Saidu Shareef, Muzaffarabad, Chitral and Rawalakot airports and prepare them for flight operations.
He said the developments were part of the New Aviation Policy 2019, prepared in line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
According to a Radio Pakistan report, the new airport ATR 72, Airbus A-380, Boeing B-737 and Boeing B-747 will be able to use, as well as any other general aircraft used for domestic and international routes.
The Gwadar airport project is included in the CPEC, so it will be built by China in three years at a cost of Rs. 40 billion. The airport will have a handling capacity of 30 000 tons of cargo.
Nusrat said that according to the prime minister’s order, the spread of aviation services in Pakistan is expanding.
It should be noted that the main objective of the recently approved New Aviation Policy 2019 is to restore the aviation sector through its effective regulation and equitable provision of facilities to its stakeholders.
