Ceiling At Islamabad Airport Crumbles Due to Heavy Rain, Watch Video
Rainwater is known to have entered the airport multiple times before this at the newly-built Islamabad International Airport.
A part of the ceiling at the newly-built Islamabad International Airport can be seen crumbling and collapsing in a video that has just come forth. Nobody was injured in the incident, which was caused by heavy rains that had apparently led to water seeping into the ceiling. Pakistan’s aviation authority has already launched a probe into the matter. The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority mentioned in a tweet that its Director-General “has taken cognizance of the damage caused by rainfall at IIAP.”
The construction of the airport was completed in 2018 and that’s when operations were shifted from the Benazir Bhutto International Airport to the new one. Rainwater is known to have entered the airport multiple times before this. Islamabad, like many parts of India, has been receiving heavy rains this year. The incident took place on the morning of August 14, when 56 millimetres of rain was recorded in the region.
