Pakistan airspace currently closed

Recommended Posts

I read about the silly wargames but was not aware that the complete(!) Pakistan airspace is closed.

Very bad news.

The EVA and Thai a/c had to dump fuel over Thai territory before landing. I believe Russian flights are being impacted the worst. The biggest problem for European and ME flights is congestion on the southerly route. BA10 went to the south. Don't understand why EVA or Thai returned.

Permissions granted for the alternative route?

Enough fuel for the extra miles?

Two Indian pilots in Pak custody. Their MiG-21 was lured by two PAF F-16s into an air def ambush. The F-16s made shallow ingress into Indian airspace, dropped bombs, and waited for IAF MiGs that scrambled. Then F-16s turned back, MiGs followed, were shot down by air defence guns.

Possibly permissions not given due to ATC workload. Both a/c would have enough fuel as the diversions from their position would not have been large.

Seems that some northern Indian destinations might also be affected.

To Moscow and for same reason Finnair hit hard, BKK to HEL.

Fuel stop(?) at DWC (Dubai World Central Airport, not the main DXB)!

And continue from there, total delay 5 hours or so.
