    You orchesterd that war and you shall be ashamed of it.

    It was many foreign states vs. a one handicapped army of Pakistan.

    Benazir Bhutto doesn't deserve such an honor for a name in South/Central Asia's most modern airport. What has she done for Pakistan? Democracy? What has democracy done for Pakistan?

    u live in rawalpindi and u dont know what's wrong with the current airport? u should visit the airport on the weekends, there are tons of planes circling around the city because there is no space to land or the runway is busy, the current airport is not in shape to handle current passenger traffic any more, with 2-3 more private airlines coming up and current isb operators increasing their numbers of flights a day, musharraf made a wise decision, he knew what islamabad needed in the future

    Old airport does not do justification to this magnificent city. Islamabad does need a modern airport away from hustle bustle

    it sure does, another problem is its size, recently, a turkish airlines kabul bound flight asked to land at islamabad airport due to a sand storm in kabul, the flight wasnt granted permission to land at islamabad because of the traffic, the flight thn landed at lahore airport instead

    It should be named Islo Airport not Gandhara and especially not Benazir bhutto air port.

    I suppose they are also going to make some hotels there rather than travelling all the way to Islamabad...
