new Delhi : Pakistan opened its airspace on Tuesday morning for all civil aviation traffic. After this decision of Pakistan, Indian Plane will now be able to move through Pakistani airspace. This will greatly benefit the Indian airline, so far the Indian carriers had to travel quite a lot. But now the way to reach many countries of Europe will be much smaller than before. Let us tell you that after the Balakot Air Strike in February, the air space for Indian aircraft was discontinued by Pakistan.
The planes had to roam around
The Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan issued notice on Monday night at 12.41 hrs, giving information about opening the airspace. In the notice, the Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan said that Pakistan's airspace is opened to all passenger planes of India with immediate effect. Pakistan comes in the middle of a very important aviation corridor. In this way many planes going towards west have to go through this route. This passes through hundreds of passenger and carrier aircraft over Pakistan.
Aviation companies had increased expenditure
With the closure of the air space on behalf of Pakistan, the planes had to travel much for the European countries. This increased the oil costs of the companies. At the same time the planes seemed to have more time to reach their destination. Significantly, in exchange for allowing aircraft to fly, Pakistan received an average of $ 500 per flight, but Pakistan's earnings were also affected by the closure of Airspace.
Air India lost Rs 491 crore
Air India had suffered a loss of Rs 491 crore till July 2 due to the closure of the Airspace of Pakistan. In fact, flights from Air India and other aviation companies from India to the US and Europe have to go over Pakistan. But due to non-receipt of permission, the aviation companies have to travel quite a lot. The country's private aviation companies Indigo, SpiceJet and Go Air also lost about 60 million rupees due to the closure of the airfield.
