ISLAMABAD : The Civil Aviation Authority on Wednesday got into another quagmire over the construction of a third runway at the airport.

The issue was taken up in the Senate Standing Committee on Cabinet Secretariat on Wednesday where the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) officials were apparently not quite prepared to face a volley of questions from senators.

Officials of the committee were told that the need for a new runway at the still under-construction New Islamabad Airport (NIIA) had been considered given future expansion plans and the expected air traffic in the capital.

The New Islamabad Airport was earlier announced to be opened on August 14, 2017.
