Pakistan re-opens airspace

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Friday announced that the country’s airspace would be fully re-opened after flights at some airports were suspended on Thursday.

“Flight operations in Pakistan to resume fully including Gilgit, Faisalabad, Multan and Rahim Yar Khan Airports, which were suspended for an additional 24 hours on Thursday,” the tweet read.

Pakistan closed its airspace on Feb 27 after tensions escalated with India in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack on February 14 by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), forcing airlines over the world to cancel or divert flights from Pakistan. (AGENCIES)
