The new Islamabad International Airport was launched with great hopes and a lot of publicity and hoopla. A lot had been claimed for the project worth billions and expectations had been high since the airport had been under construction.
But going by the looks of the new airport, it can be said that sadly, all of it had been for nothing.
It has been a mere three weeks since the opening of the new airport, but already, various issues and faults have been reported. Whether it’s the baggage system getting jammed or the broken escalators or the lack of direction for travelers; the airport unfortunately, has been in the news for all the wrong reasons.
Indeed. Rs68billion was saved for your pockets in the construction of Islamabad’s new airport.
Massive savings for one failed project alone. Right. pic.twitter.com/2zv5Zgaoew

From the images, severe ignorance and casual attitude towards the maintenance of the airport is clearly evident.
Apart from the trash lying around and the cigarette stubs found pretty much everywhere, lack of seating for the visitors and the overall unhygienic condition is visible via the pictures.
