    Excellent decision.... Airports are gateways to the country and currently Pakistani airports with the exception of Islamabad present a picture of neglect and corruption. Looking forward to private management of the airport but the government should also keep checks and balances

    That'll bring us in line with most other countries of the world. I'm sure we'll get a better service at airports too.

    so now private companies will decide who enters and leaves Pakistan?

    i understand that you have no problems with existing Canadian privacy laws but think for one second beyond promise of gold honey oil and a 20 year younger wife

    I presume that government employees will be handling immigration and customs.

    No country outsource such sensitive services.

    You will definitely have better facilities at airports but corruption by officers may not be affected by privatisation.

    I cannot comment on whether this news is good or bad without more information but 2 things :
    1) Final approval still have to be given based on OP news
    2) Your comment on no country outsource such sensitive service shows you don't know much because Australia very recently were discussing about outsourcing the visa processing system

    No Idiot. Pakistan government decides who enters and leaves, private companies just run the operations. Just like a private airline can take and bring passengers from an airport, but they don't decide who can

    How did you reach that conclusion? Managing Immigration and managing airports are two different things.

    You would make a quick progression from mere data and service handling to full on private Iqamas within a week.
    What operations need be outsourcing? The trash services, the cab service or security?
    I am targeting the next progressive target of the enlightenment age

    Do you think those are the only things happening at airports? Come on you can do better
    how about the handling of planes like landing, parking, taking off? how about luggage handling, how about fueling ops, how about passenger handling, how about various services provided to planes?

    Maybe google what happens at a typical airport, how do they generate revenue?
