How many domestic flights go into Gawader every day????? I just saw that Gwader gets 3 weekly flights from Karachi. Are you serious a city that has three weekly ATR42s needs a new airport??

What are they planning 1 weekly flight to Beijing.

How many international flights go into Gawader every day.

Complete waste of money, for an airport that handles maybe two or three flights a day is going to have the third biggest airport in Pakistan.

What about, Faisalabad, Sialkot, Peshawar, Multan.

This is a complete waste of money.

Construction of Gwadar airport picks up pace

Construction of the much-awaited New Gwadar International Airport has entered its second phase, as the joint Pakistan and China project pushes towards completion.

The airport is located in Gurandani, some 26 kilometers northeast of the city of Gwadar in Balochistan. Its total cost is $230 million.

“In the second phase a permanent station is being built,” Zhang Baozhong, chairman of the China Oversees Port Holding Company Chairman (COPHC), told Geo.tv, “This will spur up development activities with full speed and momentum.”

Despite the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, construction of the airport did not halt, he added, and the second phase has begun as per schedule.

The project is expected to be completed in three years’ time. After which, Baozhong explained, it would be the second largest airport in Pakistan
connecting Gwadar with the rest of the world.

To date, there haven't been any scheduled flights by middle east carriers into Gwadar. I don't think that too many middle east carriers would be interested in scheduled passenger flights to Gwadar even once the new airport is up and running.
