LHC moved against privatization of country’s three airports

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday has been petitioned against the privatization of country’s three airports, ARY News reported.

The petition – which seeks prohibition of privatization of three airports located in Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad – has been filed by employees of Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA).

The employees have adopted a stance that handing over aviation service management to a foreign company is sheer breach of Civil Aviation Act which obligates authorities refraining from privatizing the airports.

PCAA employees in the petition have asserted that PCAA had assured the court that it would not take such measures in another petition filed earlier. However, the government has recently put on an advertisement, aiming to grab attention of the interested bidders.

The petition stressed that giving the managerial responsibilities of civil aviation to foreigners would cause threat to national security as the run-ways and airborne radars are also used by Pakistan Air Force (PAF).
