The inauguration date for the New Islamabad Airport was set on Aug 14 2017. Now, a new date has been given which is somewhere in December 2017. This shows that the country is weak at planning. Along with the delay inthe airport into use, the delay has caused a cost over-run of over 55 percent.
There is another under-construction airport in Thar called Islamkot Airport where the runway has been lying unused for a long time now. It is hoped that the Islamkot Airport will not take a large amount of time to be made operational.
