The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) has taken a significant step toward achieving economic self-sufficiency for the country’s airports as part of the new delinking strategy.
According to the aim to delink the institution into several sections, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) has continued working on various projects to ensure the economic self-sufficiency of airports. It has been decided to lease out space at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport for a variety of shops, including a medical and general store, a diamond shop, and other businesses.
A jeweler shop will be opened in the international departure lounge of the Lahore International Airport, according to reports. PCAA published a tender notice on October 8th, asking for bids to be submitted by that date for the award of a five-year lease for the establishment and operation of a medical store and jewelry shop at the airport.
On October 8, at 11:30 a.m., the bids will be opened in the office of the airport manager at the airport. According to the airport administration, the decision was made in order to boost business options for passengers as well as medical services for those who use the facility.
A redesigned organizational structure was announced by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in January, which included the delinking of three divisions and the introduction of new posts, including an additional director-general and deputy director-general.
The Director-General of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) issued a written order to note the disengagement of the aviation authority in three divisions, including regulation, airports, and operations and support, as part of a renewed organizational structure, which had been implemented.
A second director-general and a second deputy director-general were established as a result of the new directives. The extra director-general regulatory and deputy director-general will report to the CAA DG, and the number of deputy director-general positions has been expanded from two to four.
It was earlier in December of last year that the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Pakistan formed its decision to divide the department into two parts: regulatory and operational, in order to comply with international aviation standards.
