Rejected India’s plea to open airspace: Pakistan


Pakistan has turned down India’s request to lift restrictions on the use of its airspace until New Delhi removes its fighter jets from forward Indian Air Force bases close to the Indian-Pakistan border, said officials familiar with the matter.

Pakistan’s aviation secretary Shahrukh Nusrat, who is also the director general of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), on Thursday informed the Senate Standing Committee on Aviation that his department has intimated Indian officials that Pakistani airspace would remain unavailable for use by India, said the officials.
