Pakistan to reopen airspace to commercial flights

Skies over the south Asian nation were shut earlier this week amid heightened tensions with India over the disputed Kashmir and Jammu regions.

Airlines were forced to re-route or cancel dozens of flights following the closure on Wednesday (February 27).

Thai Airways cancelled more than a dozen flights before securing permission to operate using Chinese airspace instead.

Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority said on Friday its airspace would reopen to commercial flights from 4pm local time (11am GMT).

“Flight operations are due to start from 4pm today,” said a spokesperson for the CAA, Reuters reports.
