Pakistan closed its airspace for commercial flights and suspended flight operations across major airports amid current conflict with India. Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) informed that the flight operations would remain shut until further notice.

Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority tweeted saying, “NOTAM is still in place & airspace over #Pakistan remains closed. Apology for an earlier tweet that indicated the partial opening of our airspace for commercial aviation. Any further information will be shared accordingly.”

“Due to the ongoing situation on the India-Pakistan border, its flights to the airports in Faisalabad, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Multan, Peshawar and, Sialkot stand temporarily suspended”, said Qatar Airways via a statement issued on Wednesday.

Yesterday, flight operations across eight airports in India – Amritsar, Pathankot, Srinagar, Jammu, Shimla, Dharamshala, Kullu and Leh – were shut briefly. Operations later resumed in all the airports. Meanwhile, Air Canada has temporarily suspended its flight services to India, after Pakistan’s decision to shut its airspace.

These measures come in the wake of Pakistan Air Force violation of the Indian air space and capturing Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. Fighter jets from the Indian Air Force resisted the morning raid launched by Pakistani F-16 fighter jets on Indian troop positions or infrastructure.

On Tuesday, India launched an anti-terror strike against a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror training camp in Pakistan’s Balakot. “The existence of such training facilities, capable of training hundreds of jihadis, could not have functioned without the knowledge of the Pakistani authorities,” Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale Gokhale said.

The air strike was carried out in the aftermath of the terrorist attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district. Pakistan-based JeM claimed responsibility for the attacks. The global pressure is escalating against Pakistan to stop terrorist activities in its territory.
