Pakistan’s airspace shut for Indian flights till May 30

Lahore: Pakistan on Wednesday decided not to lift its airspace ban for Indian flights till May 30, as Islamabad is awaiting the outcome of the Lok Sabha polls in India. Pakistan fully closed its airspace after an Indian Air Force strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camp in Balakot on February 26.

However, Pakistan opened its airspace for all flights except for New Delhi, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur on March 27. “The top officials of defence and aviation ministries held a meeting on Wednesday to reconsider opening its airspace for Indian flights,” a senior government official told PTI after the meeting.
