KARACHI: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is set to install a night landing system at the Gwadar airport.

A CAA spokesperson in a statement said that Aviation Secretary Shahrukh Nusrat — who also holds the charge of the authority’s director general — had also issued directives to make Saidu Shareef, Muzaffarabad, Chitral and Rawalakot airports ready for flight operations.

Mr Nusrat said that the outreach of air services was being broadened in Pakistan under the new aviation policy that was prepared in line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The spokesperson said that the key objective of the National Aviation Policy 2019, which has been approved by the cabinet, was to restore the aviation sector by effectively regulating it and equally providing facilities to all stakeholders.
