ISLAMABAD: Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Tuesday lifted the shutdown call of Pakistan’s airspace after a period of five months, allowing all countries including neighbours India to use Pakistan’s airspace.
The Aviation Regulation body has issued a notification in this regard. According to CAA, all flying routes are available for every airline with immediate effect.
Flight operations from Lahore to Delhi, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Sri Lanka and Ürümqi are restored, CAA said.
Back in February, Pakistan had shut down its airspace after Indian fighter jets did the violation of its international boundary and airspace.
In March, it partially opened its airspace but kept it banned for the Indian flights. India had also banned its airspace for flights to Pakistan.
