Pakistan reopens airspace months after closure

Published

Pakistan on Tuesday re-opened parts of its airspace months after having closed it following air strikes on the country’s territory by rival India targeting a militant group’s alleged training camp, officials said.

”Pakistan’s airspace is completely open for all kind of flights with immediate effect,” Civil Aviation Authority spokesman, Ahmer Azeem, said.

The stand-off resulted in the closure by the Pakistani authorities of the country’s airspace, a key aviation route that links Central and Southeast Asia with South Asia.

The airspace was partially reopened after a couple of weeks but remained closed along Pakistan’s border with India, forcing several airlines’ regular flights to adopt longer routes every day at the cost of extra time and money.
