Pakistan will not open its airspace for commercial flights until New Delhi removes its fighter jets from forward IAF airbases. This is what Pakistan’s Aviation Secretary Shahrukh Nusrat has informed a parliamentary committee. Pakistan fully closed its airspace on February 26 after the Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter jets struck a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorist training camp in Balakot following the Pulwama terror attack in Kashmir. Aviation secretary 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 until the country withdraws its fighter jets from forward positions.
