Due to cracks, which pose a risk to flight operations, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has announced the temporary closure of two runways at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport. The timing of this choice coincides with the aviation sector’s emphasis on maintenance and safety.

The Karachi airport’s runways 25-L and 7-R have developed cracks that require immediate attention, according to the CAA, which is in charge of regulating Pakistan’s air travel. The CAA published a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) outlining the schedule for the repair to address this problem. For the following five months, both runways are expected to be shut down every day.

This closure is intended to make it easier to complete extensive crack repairs and to guarantee the long-term dependability and safety of the airport’s infrastructure. The CAA has worked with airlines to ensure that they are informed about the impending closure in order to minimize disruptions to air travel.

In order to maintain a degree of continuity for passenger and cargo services throughout the repair, flights will continue using alternate runways. International aviation standards, which emphasize routine maintenance and safety checks, are in line with the CAA’s proactive approach.
