‘400 Flights Cancelled, 25000 Flyers Affected In Pakistan’: Airspace Closure Takes Heavy Toll On Islamic Nation


The flight operations resumed in Lahore from yesterday (3 March) after they were suspended on Wednesday (27 February) post the Indian airstrike in Balakot in retaliation to the Pulwama attack which was conducted by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) – a terror outfit based in Pakistan.
