The government has decided to upgrade seven major airports of Pakistan to the international level.
While addressing a conference of airports managers, Aviation Secretary and Director General of Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) directed that problems of the passengers should be solved forthwith on all the airports.
He also directed the airport managers to make arrangements amicably for the Haj flights which will commence from July 5, 2019 and maximum facilities should be provided to the pilgrims to avoid any hardships in performing Hajj.
Nusrat issued directions to the airport officials to arrest unauthorised persons and take emergency steps to remove them from the airports of the CAA.
He said the aviation sector would be designed in accordance with the new policy as per the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The aviation secretary said that the top priority of the CAA was to provide maximum facilities to the passengers at every airport of Pakistan.
He asked the airport managers to particularly take care of the overseas Pakistanis during their arrivals at the Pakistani airports.
Nusrat said that the prime minister has given special instructions to address the complaints and grievances of the Pakistani expatriates, who transmit foreign exchange to the homeland.
