Pakistan bars low-flying aircraft over Karachi airspace

New Age Desk

Amid heightening tensions with India, Pakistan has barred low flying aircraft over its Karachi airspace – which is a stone’s throw from the international border at Gujarat and Rajasthan – for a week up to next Monday, reports The Times of India.
Pakistan on Monday night issued a notice to airmen (Notam) that some segments of international air traffic services ‘routes within Karachi flight information region (FIR) will not be available from surface to 33,000 feet (flight level) due operational reasons’.
A Notam is a notice filed with an aviation authority to alert aircraft pilots of potential hazards along a flight route or at a location that could affect the safety of the flight.
