Gawadar International Airport successfully conducts its first international flight 

In a landmark achievement for New Gwadar International Airport, the Flight Calibration and Flight Procedure Design milestone was celebrated today with the successful test landing of the Calibration Aircraft on the newly constructed runway. This exciting event was marked by a traditional water cannon salute from the PCAA’s Rescue and Fire Fighting Services, a customary honor that underscored the significance of this accomplishment. The Calibration Aircraft’s landing is more than just a procedural step; it represents a major leap forward in the airport’s journey toward becoming fully operational.

This significant milestone is the result of relentless hard work and seamless collaboration between the Chinese and Pakistani project teams. Leading the Chinese team were Mr. Ding Kan, PD-CACC; Mr. Zhu Zheng, Chief Supervisor-CACC; Mr. Liao Jianxin, Project Coordinator-CACC; Mr. Hu Xiaohe, PM-BUCG; and Mr. Dai Chunzhuang, PM-CRBEG. Their expertise and dedication were instrumental in advancing the project to this crucial stage. Equally commendable are the efforts of the Pakistani project team, which included Mr. Sadiq Ur Rehman, Dy. DG Airport Services/Ex-PD NGIAP; Engr. Faiz Ullah Khattak, Project Director, PCAA; Engr. Ghulam Mujtaba, Dy. Project Director PCAA; and Mr. Aamir Ali Hashmi, Project Coordinator, PCAA. The combined efforts of these teams have driven the project forward with remarkable efficiency and dedication.

Additionally, the critical roles played by the Technical Directorates of the PCAA and the Flight Inspection Unit (FIU) cannot be overlooked. Their expertise and hard work have been pivotal in achieving this milestone within a relatively short timeframe. Their contributions have ensured that the project remains on track and meets all necessary standards and requirements.

Set to be fully operational in the fourth quarter of this year, the New Gwadar International Airport is poised to have a transformative impact on the development of Gwadar and its surrounding areas. The completion of the airport is expected to significantly enhance the connectivity and economic potential of the region, fostering growth and development. This project promises to improve the lives of the people of Balochistan Province and the Coastal Region, providing new opportunities for economic and social advancement.

The successful test landing of the Calibration Aircraft is not just a technical milestone; it is a symbol of progress and a testament to the collaborative spirit of the teams involved. As the New Gwadar International Airport moves closer to its official opening, it stands as a beacon of future potential, ready to drive the region towards a brighter, more connected future.
