Benazir Internaton Airport or Fatima Jinnah Internation Airport



  • Looking at Karachi and Lahore airports Islamabad badly needs a bigger and better airport and ofcourse isloo people need to get rid of this old airport at chaklala with annoying jerky buses , cold terminals and chaotic securtiy check system . The New Islamabad International airport will replace the existing one located in Rawalpindi. This airport is located in Fateh Jang, which is 30km south-west of the city. The construction had already started in 2008 . Sources say that this project will be completed in 2011 or 2012 and is going to cost around Rs 24 Billion .

    Thou uptill now is being called Benazir Bhutto Internation Airport But Capital Deserves Founder not a Leader?

    It may upset so many but my personal opinion is It should be named Fatima Jinnah Airport, as far Late. Benazir Butto is concerned, Airport should be In Larkana Named after her, her home land, as M.A Jinnah has Karachi and Iqbal has Lahore. Fatima Jinnah played the major important role but never given a deserving respect and honor? I wonder why? she was the only female who was standing along with her brother M.A Jinnah and it seems with time her entire career what ever she did for Pakistan is vanishing in the name of Political Parties. Rest is on People to Decide and Suggest because the power of the nation is much stronger than Government or Army, It is my Suggestion That Larkana Airport should be International Airport and Named after her, so those who live in interior sindh will know that their leader left a mark forever, in her own Home Town.

    his new airport is designed to cater around nine million people annually .It is said to be the second one in asia for cargo handling after hongkong airport. Its is expected to handle 100, 000 tones of cargo linking motorway1 and 2 which will add the commercial activities of the area . There is going to be a special parking for hijacked airplanes too . This new airport is going to be much bigger than karachi and lahore airport as it area is 3200 acre or 13square km.

    The current Islamabad International Airport was named after Bhutto by Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gillani on Friday, 21 June 2008.There is a controversy over naming the new airport . Some say its should be Fatima Jinnah airport or Abdul Qadeer airport or Sir syed ahmed khan airport Or simply Islamabad airport, but I disagree with sayings seeing the facts and figure, If Capital will not get the place for Fatima Jinnah than will there be another bench mark for her any where else or any bus stand? The assignation of Late.Benazir Bhutto was the great loss in the every aspect of life but I think she should be given honor in her own home town.

    Interesting facts are the design of the new air port is on Islamic geometric, mostly Turkish pattern, with intelligent roof to conserve water , it is designed to use natural daylight for main lighting and sun shaders to cut the use air conditioners which brings down the use of electricity and its front portal is elongated so that it gives a better view thus keeping in mind its environment and sustainability . The international and domestic hall is under one main roof with a trapezoid Cantiliever . Now electricity part is the most interesting, means even new airport will suffer like entire Pakistan and will might use Ultra Power Supply UPS. This Airport does not have enough capacity for parking means the risk of suicide or car bombing already planned by the government, drop the passenger and GO GO GO. most of the portion of the airport is in -1 -2 -3 level which is for VVIP’s only, the actual plan of Islamabad International Airport was approved right after 1958 but in 1965 war and later 1971 delayed it and Islamabad Internation Airport remained as a dream, uptill now Air Base is being used as Internation Airport, just because of its 4 miles runway , Traffic from Islamabad to Rawalpindi has to take a long drive of least 10 miles.
