Story highlights

With heavy rainfall came down Islamabad International Airport's false ceiling. However, turns out, this is not the first time such a downfall has taken place. Twitter reactions tell the tale

Islamabad airport frequents remember a bucket lying in the centre of the floor. This bucket was used to collect water pouring from the ceiling during the rainy days. However, a different year calls for different scenery.

Everybody was shocked, but not surprised when on Monday sections of the false ceiling started leaking in Islamabad's brand new airport.

When heavy rainfall hit the twin cities, Islamabad and Rawalpindi, rainwater entered the Islamabad International Airport which led to the collapse of some sections of the false ceiling.

The airport staff was seen standing helplessly as rainwater started pouring down on the immigration counter, among other places. Several electric equipments malfunctioned due to the water.

Turns out this is not a new thing. A huge portion of the false ceiling had collapsed earlier in August 2020, which many visitors said was a usual thing for Islamabad airport now.
