Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif inspected and inaugurated the latest landing system installed on the runway that will enables flights landing at even 50 metre visibility. The first step of the airport expansion project has been completed in a record period of time and would not only ensure safe landing of planes in foggy weather and low visibility but also help save time for the airport, airlines and passengers.

Safegate Group is proud to work  with the airport traffic expansion project in Lahore. The project started in July this year is being executed in two steps, where the first part is focusing on keeping the airport open and operational during all weather conditions with at least 5 movements per hour. When the second part of the project is completed in May 2016, the airport will be able to maintain 25 aircraft movements in all weather conditions.

During the weekend the Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif visited Lahore Allama Iqbal International Airport. See photo gallery from the inauguration:
