Multan International Airport Information

The airport caters both International & Domestic flights. It is situated 4 km West of the city.

Multan is also known as Madinat-ul-Auliya - because of the large number of shrines and Sufi saints from the city. Naturally, the prime attractions are the mausoleums of Sufi saints. It is blanketed with bazaars, mosques, shrines, and ornate tombs. The city is famous for its handicrafts (carpets & ceramics) and cottage industries. Multan is also an important agricultural centre. Multan features an arid climate with very hot summers and mild winters. Local rickshaws and taxi cabs connect the airport to the city. A few moderate to cheap hotels are available. The Airport operates nonstop round the clock, 7 days a week.

In January 2010, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority decided that a brand new terminal with four jet bridges would be constructed instead of expanding the current terminal. In June 2010, PM Yousaf Raza Gillani carried out the ground breaking ceremony for the terminal building and inaugurated the first PIA Boeing 747 Hajj flight on 28 October 2010.

Multan International Airport is fitted with all the essentials for domestic and international flights with the inauguration of the new terminal. The information below is correct as of April 2016.
