Most likely secondary runway will become operational as Runway 03L/21R.

After secondary runway becomes operational, the primary Runway 03/21 will be upgraded to handle Boeing 777 category aircraft. Most likely, the upgraded primary runway will become Runway 03R/21L.

Faisalabad Airport main Runway 03R/21L reconstruction work completion expected by August 2022 at a cost PKR 3.58 billion.

The main runway will be equipped with modern Instrument Landing System (ILS) allowing flight operations in poor visibility.

The reconstructed main runway will be capable of handling Boeing 777 category wide-body passenger aircraft.

The reconstructed main runway will also open the airport to new international routes and foreign airlines.

The reconstructed main runway will also allow operation of wide-body cargo aircraft flights at the airport. It will help exporters from Faisalabad and adjacent areas in exporting their products to various countries around the world directly.
