CAA extends partial airspace ban

Pakistan has further extended the restriction on its airspace for flights to India until June 28.

Earlier, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) restricted flights from India to enter into Pakistani airspace until June 15.

After the implementation of suspension on overfly operations, flights from Lahore to Delhi, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Sri Lanka and Urumqi were cancelled.

The airspace was closed by Pakistan when a fresh wave of tensions affected already sour relations between both countries in February.

A CAA spokesperson explained that transit and overfly within Pakistani airspace will remain suspended until further orders. However, there are no restrictions on the operations on the country’s western airspace.
