Pakistan will open new air routes for additional flights to China during the Beijing Olympics, the Geo Channel reported in its website on Thursday.

The report cited civil aviation chief Faruque Rahmatullah as saying that the new air routes for additional flights will help save fuels and add more air traffics to China.

Rahmatullah, director-general of Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), said that the flights coming from Europe and Gulf countries could save half an hour in their journey to Beijing through new route.

He said a new aviation policy has been sent to the Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani for his approval, which envisages taking aviation industry share in GDP to one percent in the next four years.

Feeder airports would be constructed in collaboration with the private sector for the growth of industry and air service to far-flung areas, said Rahmatullah, adding that the hotels and other trading constructions in Karachi would be undertaken on a sprawling plot of 1500 acres, which is expected to fetch investments amounting to 3 billion U.S. dollars.

He said that the existing security arrangements at the Pakistani airports were of international standard.
