Jinnah International Airport Karachi’s runway will remain closed for a period of five months due to repair work, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.
According to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), routine maintenance of the runway, 25-L, will take place from Monday to Sunday for two to three hours, and will continue until January 23, 2024.
The CAA further said that there were minor cracks on the runway, which had rendered its repair necessary. “During the period of runway’s closure, flights will land on alternate or secondary runway,” the Authority informed.
