Jinnah airport: shaping up

A week ago I wrote about the disappointing experience at Jinnah airport for international departures, but I’m glad to report that at least the arrangements for arriving flights have been upgraded. Workers were busy putting the finishing touches on a bank of new immigration counters, the luggage arrived promptly, and, best of all, the green channel has made a comeback. Ahhh … I felt carefree as I walked past the customs officials with my precious drops of bottled civilisation this afternoon.

    Cy, these were my comments on your last blog for Karachi Airport.

    Just to correct few things here. There are a lot other departments who are involved in the process of checkin till departure. Blaming CAA for all this is not justified. Baggage belts are majorly being controlled by the customs staff and FIA. CAA officials are their but they cannot run more belts without the cooperation of these 2 agencies. Then checkin is sole responsibility of the Ground Handling Agent or the Airline staff. Then comes immigration which is also part of FIA and again CAA is not involved in it.
    In my view CAA is doing its best, i have never seen the escalators unserviceble or untideness inside the terminal area or the boarding gates having problems. In my view the airport is being maintained well. I flew abroad 18 times to and from karachi since last year.
