It is pertinent to mention here that New Islamabad International Airport has No Name. Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi rejected all three names that were proposed to him for new Islamabad International Airport. The three names suggested to the Prime Minister by his colleagues for the New Islamabad International Airport were Liaquat Ali Khan, Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, and Gandhara. Shahid Khaqan Abbasi refused all the names “without giving any specific justification”.

Twitteratis want the airport to be named after Abdul Sattar Edhi but it seems that the airport will remain nameless.
