On Tuesday, July 16, Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) announced that the country’s airspace has reopened to all civilian traffic with immediate effect. According to a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) released on Tuesday, the previous restrictions on preventing foreign carriers that use Indian airspace from entering Pakistani airspace have been dropped. CAA officials did not immediately announce why the previous restrictions were removed.


The CAA closed Pakistani airspace on February 27 after a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jet was shot down above Pakistan-controlled Azad Jammu and Kashmir. In April, the CAA only opened two routes, both of them pass through southern Pakistan.


Individuals traveling via Pakistan are advised to monitor the situation and contact their airlines for more information.
