It has been estimated that the airport will be the biggest in Pakistan. The new location of the Islamabad International Airport has been selected at Fateh Jang (or at Tarnol, as reported by other sources [4]), nearly 5km from Islamabad. The construction of the new airport is underway and completion is estimated to be in 2010.
