First Flight Via Pakistan Lands In Delhi Airport After 3 Months

New Delhi: Etihad’s Abu Dhabi-New Delhi flight on Sunday evening became the first to land in India by flying via Pakistan after a gap of more than three months since the imposition of airspace restrictions by the two countries following the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) strikes at Balakot.

Etihad Airways’ EY224 landed at the Delhi Airport from Gujarat after flying through Pakistan at 5.34 p.m., four minutes after one route between India and Pakistan was opened for flights from Pakistan, according to a senior official of the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MCA).

Last week, India decided to lift restrictions on all 11 entry and exit points for flights along its border with Pakistan.

Subsequently, a decision was taken on Saturday by Pakistan to open one route near Lakhpat in Gujarat for flights flying via its territory into India with effect from 5.30 p.m. on June 2.

Ministry officials say the rest of the points are expected to be gradually opened for flight between and through the two countries.
