ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar yesterday said that a committee is being formed to suggest on the mechanism to be adopted for outsourcing airports in the country.
The committee will look into the mechanism of outsourcing and would suggest on the matter, he said while talking media.
Asad Umar said that although Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is responsible for regulating and operating the airports, however, these two operations would be separated within two months.
