Pakistan's airspace remain closed amid tension with India
Civil Aviation Authority initially confirmed that Pakistani airspace has been partially restored, starting with Karachi's Jinnah International Airport.
On Thursday, CAA announced that the airspace was being restored temporarily for commercial aviation.
Earlier, the aviation authority announced that airspace had been shut after Pakistan Air Force shot down two Indian Air Force aircraft while capturing a pilot alive.
Tension between India and Pakistan escalated in the aftermath of Pulwama attack on February 14th in which over 40 Indian soldiers were left dead.
Indian Air Force violated the Line of Control in the wee hours of Tuesday before being whisked away by Pakistan Air Force.
IAF repeated the same ‘mistake’ a day later, however, this time PAF shot down two aircraft and captured Wing Commander Abhi Nandan as well.
