Pakistan's airspace

Pakistan’s airspace has been reopened to civil aviation

 

After months of the ban of airspace now Pakistani Airspace hs been opened for the Civil aviation.

Pakistan on Feb 26 fully banned the airspace for the Indian planes because of the Indian fighter jets violation of international boundary and tension between Pakistan and India.

During the tension, Pakistan retaliated the Indian violation of the airspace and shot down two Indian planes and captured one Indian pilot which was released after on humanitarian grounds.

Authorities have confirmed that operation for the civil aviation is now restored and commercial planes can pass through the territory of Pakistan.

Pakistan lies in the middle of a vital aviation corridor and the airspace restrictions affected hundreds of commercial and cargo flights each day, adding to flight time for passengers and fuel costs for airlines.
