The new Gwadar International Airport in Pakistan will be built using government funding despite an earlier decision that the airport would be built by the Civil Aviation Authority.

The $89m project will receive $73m from the Pakistan Government, while the Oman Government will provide $17.5m towards construction of the airport in a 4,300-acre site.

The project was approved in July 2008 under the government’s Balochistan development policy.

The airport will be operational by 2020 while the second phase project will be complete by 2030 and the final phase by 2050.

The airport is expected to handle more than a million passengers and 50,000t of cargo a year.
