According to sources, the Gwadar International Airport is set to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif later this month. This is expected to boost the coastal city’s appeal to both local and foreign investors. The airport, which is located in Gurandani, 26km east of Gwadar city, was financed by the Chinese government’s grant under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project at an estimated cost of $230 million. Construction of the airport created 3,000 jobs and it is capable of handling a combination of ATR 72, Airbus (A-300), Boeing (B-737), and Boeing (B-747) for domestic and international routes. The airport is expected to begin flight operations on Pakistan Day, March 23. Meanwhile, Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal has instructed the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to complete all development projects before September 2023 for the airport and present a plan of action within three days for execution and implementation of the remaining tasks.
