Gwadar International Airport to test flight in December
QUETTA, June 10 (Gwadar Pro) - The test flight from new Gwadar International Airport will start in December 2022 as the construction work on site has been expedited, the Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) announced on Thursday afternoon.
The new $246m greenfield Gwadar International Airport (NGIA) being built at an area of 4,300 acres would be made operational before the deadline which was September 2023, the GDA confirmed.
The government has expanded the 50-bed Pakistan-China Friendship Hospital Gwadar to a 150-bed state-of-the-art medical centre in order to ensure best health care facilities for the people of Gwadar.
The Authority would ensure state-of-the-art free medical facility to the inhabitants of port city of Gwadar from January next year.
GDA plans to resolve the water supply to Gwadar in a short period of three months as desalination plant is also in progress to curtail the need of whole city.
GDA said the authorities asked to strictly adhere to Gwadar Master Plan while carrying out development and other public welfare projects in the city.
The departments concerned are making all out efforts to expedite the infrastructure and development projects for its timely completion in Gwadar.
GDA said there were vast investment opportunities in every sector and comprehensive strategy would be adopted to attract investors in this regard.
Balochistan government was striving hard to develop Gwadar to end the sense of deprivation among the people of port city, the Authority added.
