Most of the restrictions imposed by Pakistan on its Airspace usage after Indian Airstrikes in Balakot on 26 February 2019 still continue. As a result of these restrictions, most of the scheduled airlines have had to re-route their flights resulting in a longer flight time. As per a report in the Times of India it is estimated that Pakistan has suffered a loss of USD 100 million since the airspace restrictions were imposed.
As of now only 02 points are available for Entry / Exit to / from Indian Airspace.
All westbound flights from the Indian FIR to Pakistan FIR can be cleared through Entry Point KABIM Over Arabian sea.
All eastbound flights from Pakistan FIR to Indian FIR can be cleared through Entry Point TELEM Over Gujarat.
