New Islamabad airport lacks bus service: report

ISLAMABAD: The new Islamabad International Airport is scheduled to welcome international flights Thursday onwards, but there is no public bus service to facilitate citizens in travelling to and from the airport, reported a local media outlet. 

Constructed at the cost of Rs105 billion, the new airport was inaugurated by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi at the beginning of this month.

The government decided to inaugurate the new airport before the completion of the metro bus track from Peshawar Mor to the new airport, which is 20km from Zero Point and over 25km from Saddar, Rawalpindi.

The 26.5km metro bus track project, worth Rs16 billion from Peshawar Mor to the airport is being executed by the National Highway Authority (NHA) and is yet to be completed.
