Flight disruptions are reported as of Friday, March 1, at Bangkok International Airport (BKK) amid the partial closure of Pakistan airspace. The Taiwanese company EVA Airways as well as Thailand's national company, Thai Airways, which has canceled most of its flights to Europe, are the most impacted. Around 2000 passengers are reported stranded in Bangkok. However, airline officials announced the situation should return to normal before Monday, March 4. Further flight disruptions (delays, cancelations) are likely in the coming hours and days.
Pakistan temporarily suspended civilian flight operations on February 27 after the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) allegedly shot down two Indian Air Force (IAF) jets in Pakistani airspace in Azad Jammu and Kashmir earlier in the day.
Potentially impacted travelers are advised to confirm flight reservations, contact their airline for additional information, and monitor developments to the situation.
