After Indian and Pakistani warplanes engage, commercial flights resume at 7 airports after suspension
New Delhi: Flight operations at seven airports including Srinagar, Jammu and Leh resumed after they were briefly suspended amid escalation of tension between India and Pakistan after the Indian Air Force carried out strikes on a Jaish-e-Muhammad terror camp in Balakot.
An official from the Airport Authority of India, in a conversation with a news agency, said, “The civilian air traffic has been suspended temporarily in view of the emergency.”
While flight operations were also suspended at Amritsar airport, P Acharya, Amritsar airport director, also said, “Due to operational reasons, the airspace at Amritsar has been closed for now. No commercial flights are coming to Amritsar, there is no base here, so flights are not even taking off from here.”
