^ The new aerodrome should have runway capable of handling executive jet, regional jet/narrow-body airliner flights.

The new aerodrome will replace Walton Aerodrome in Lahore.

Walton Aerodrome will be shut down for the development of Walton Central Business District (CBD).

Somebody is going to make a lot of money selling land to the CAA.

Whoever decides where the airport goes, buys the land first, then sells it to the CAA at a handsome profit.

This is why we are now poorer than Bangladesh, that has higher GDP, Forex reserves and exports than Pakistan.

Federal Cabinet meeting on April 1 chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan has de-notified Walton Aerodrome in Lahore for the development of Central Business District (CBD) on aerodrome land, informed Federal Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain at a press briefing.

Land outside Lahore has been allocated for the construction of a greenfield aerodrome for general aviation aircraft.

The new aerodrome will be developed jointly by the Government of Punjab and Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Land has been provided to Pakistan CAA by the Government of Punjab for the development of aerodrome.

Walton Aerodrome operations will be shifted to the new aerodrome outside Lahore.
