Srinagar: In a surprising move, Pakistan has disallowed flights, taking off from Srinagar international airport for Sharjah, from flying its airspace, sources said on Wednesday.
As per the reports the authorities in Pakistan have disallowed the flights taking off from Srinagar for Sharjah from flying its territory.
They said that the flight will now be an hour and a half longer as planes will have to fly to Sharjah via Udaipur and Ahmedabad and overfly Oman.
“The flight will also be more expensive, an additional burden for passengers, most of whom are Kashmiris. The ministry of external affairs and the civil aviation ministry have been informed about Pakistan’s decision,” they said.
