The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Pakistan has confirmed the launch of the much-anticipated Gwadar International Airport. Wego reports that the airport is set to be operational by the year 2025. A recent notification from the CAA revealed that the airport has successfully secured certification as a global aerodrome in category C for the next two years. 


The construction of the New Gwadar International Airport has been a collaborative effort between China and Pakistan, a strategic project under the CPEC initiative. The airport’s completion is expected to boost economic activities and trade in the Gwadar region, contributing to the overall development of the area.

One of the key features highlighted by CAA officials is the implementation of a contemporary landing system at the New Gwadar International Airport. This system is expected to enhance the airport’s capabilities and ensure safe landings even in adverse weather scenarios.

Despite facing delays in its inauguration, the airport has undergone significant preparations to meet international standards. The inauguration date for the Gwadar Airport has been revised on multiple occasions. As anticipation builds, stakeholders and the public are eagerly awaiting the inauguration of the New Gwadar International Airport, which is poised to play a pivotal role in connecting the region to global markets and fostering economic growth.
