Pakistani airspace ever going to reopen?

Thu Jun 20, 2019 12:24 am

They seem to be consistently pushing back the date. I've heard mid May, May 31, June 15, now June 28. Airlines might as well accept that this is going to be the long term reality, and start marketing their flights accordingly.

Pakistan is a very unstable country. They need to first solve their internal issues of harbouring Islamic terrorists, for them to reach any truce with their neighbours.
Till then, I expect their airspace closure to keep dragging on.

Don't countries get paid for the flights flying over them? Pakistan is in a financial crisis, any money would help....but oh well one has to be ready for an Indian attack which is never coming...

If I was in power, I would go with installing better radars which can differentiate a Su-30 and B787 with the money given by overflying a/c

Overflight fees are tiny in the grand scheme. They don't even cover the cost of maintaining ATC services, navigation beacons and wages for all involved.

Irrespective "cost of maintaining ATC services, navigation beacons and wages" are still happening. India has already allowed flights to Pakistan to fly over, what's the point of maintaining this ban?

The amount is tiny, barely even registers for that. Of all the reasons why they should reopen their airspace, this is among the last.

It is open and flights are flying through it. Some airlines are choosing to avoid and some are not. Most of the flights flying through Pakistani airspace are flying just south of Karachi.

Treating your airspace like your country is a battleground isn't going to incite overflights.
