New security system at airport

KARACHI, Sept 12 2005, The Under Vehicle Checking System (UVIS) has started functioning at the Karachi International Airport, said a news release issued here on Monday.

In order to operate the system, the ASF staff got training by foreign qualified engineers.

The ASF is also planning to install the same system at the Lahore and Islamabad airports, said the news release.
