As per the senior official of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, India is reviewing Pakistan’s request to open an air route from Mumbai to Karachi and northwards for flights towards Europe.

Pakistan shuts its airspace for civilian fights following military tensions ten days ago. It is reliably learned that following international tension, Pakistan also sought permission to open another east-bound route from Karachi, to enter India near Ahmedabad, via Muscat (for flights towards South East Asia and beyond).

However, India rejected this proposal as there was no permission for traffic getting out of the country in the reverse direction. On Twitter, Flightradar tweeted that Pakistan says it attempted to open one eastbound and one westbound transiting airway through Pakistani airspace between the Muscat and Mumbai  FIRs, but Mumbai FIR denied reciprocal connectivity.
