According to the notice issued by the country's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Pakistan extended the ban on air border with India on its eastern border for the third time on Thursday, till June 28.

The CAA notice states: "The Pakistani airspace will remain closed to its eastern border with India till June 28." The Panjgur airspace will remain open for transit flights from the west because Air India was already using that airspace. "

After the Indian Air Force fighters attacked the terrorist training camp Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in Balakot after the Pulwama terrorist attack in Kashmir, on 26 February, Pakistan had completely shut down its airspace.

On 15th May, Pakistan extended the airspace restrictions for the first time by 30th May. Then, on May 30, they extended the ban until June 15. Now it has extended the airspace restriction till June 28.

An official from Pakistan Government told PTI, "Since there has been no official communication about the inauguration of the airspace between the two countries, the status quo will continue."

On Wednesday, Pakistan granted special permission for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's VVIP flight to use his airspace on his official visit to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Bishkek, capital of Kyrgyzstan.

However, Prime Minister Modi's VVIP aircraft avoided flying in Pakistan. Since the last round of Indo-Pak tension, Pakistan has opened only two air routes, both of which pass through Southern Pakistan of 11 out of total.

As a result of the ban, foreign carriers using Indian airspace have been forced to make an expensive explosion as they cannot fly to Pakistan. In and out of New York, Europe, and the United States, the most in-flight flights have been affected.
