Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority (Urdu: مقتدرۂ شہری طیران) (CAA) is a regulatory authority, which oversees and regulates all aspects of civil aviation in Pakistan. Nearly all civilian airports in Pakistan are owned and operated by the CAA. CAA's head office is situated in Terminal 1 of Jinnah International Airport in Karachi.[1]

CAA is a member of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).



According to Service Performance Survey (SPS), a recent survey conducted by Singapore Airlines, the Allama Iqbal International Airport Lahore is ranked the world’s leading airport in terms of service performance out of 18 airports from around the world, including Dubai Airport, Capetown Airport, Mumbai Airport and Campbell Town Airport UK for its good terminal services and effective management.

Responding, DG CAA said:

In an age where knowledge, innovation and advancements have paved the way for unprecedented growth and opportunities, adaptation to change was a critical element that would help us keep pace with the changing dynamics of airport management.
