The new multi-story car park building at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport has been completed and will be inaugurated by the Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan today (Monday, 21 June).
The three-story car park is equipped with a modern parking management system and can accommodate 4000 vehicles at a time. The current car park will be transformed into arrival and departure lounges.
The work on the new car park building was started in 2017 under the Lahore Airport extension project that had been approved by the Shehbaz Sharif-led provincial government.
At the time of its approval in 2016, the project had been divided into three parts, terminal building, and car parking access roads. Six new state-of-the-art boarding bridges were also added under this project.
After the completion of the project, the number of airplanes parked inside the hanger near the main terminal will be increased to 22 from only seven.
The Allama Iqbal International Airport, previously known as the ‘Lahore International Airport’ is the third-largest airport in the country and caters to a large number of passengers from across Punjab.
