Pakistan civil aviation authority has issued a new Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) which says that “Pakistani airspace is open for all type of civil traffic on all routes with immediate effect”. Pakistan closed its air space earlier this week at the height of tensions with neighbouring India that saw both countries carry out air raids inside each other’s territories for the first time since the 1971 war. 

Due to the airspace restrictions International and domestic air travel in the region was massively disrupted, as many airports along the border of Pakistan and India were shut, international flights that use Pakistani airspace to overfly were rerouted or suspended. Adding additional stopovers and costs for airlines that use to fly over Pakistan.
