The order to shut nine airports of northern states of Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh has been withdrawn. Flight functions have already started, resumed in some airports including Jammu.
“As of now, the airports have resumed which were shutdown”, a spokesperson of Directorate General of Civil Aviation told news agency PTI.
The list of airports included Amritsar, Jammu, Srinagar and Leh, Kullu-Manali, Kangra, Shimla, Pathankot and Pithoragarh. The airports were shutdown because of an escalation of hostilities with Pakistan.
The whole airspace in North of Delhi had to be vacated. The whole area is on high alert after Pakistan’s warning to retaliate after Indian Army crossed the Line of Control yesterday and destroyed a vast terror camp of Jaish-e-Muhammad.
Yesterday morning there were reports of Pakistani fighter jets entered indian air space in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch and Rajouri sectors.
