Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority has decided to reopen its airspace on Thursday allowing Air Arabia and Emirates aircraft to return to UAE. Air Arabia G9825 flew back to Ras Al Khaimah and Emirates EK637 flew back to Dubai from Peshawar without carrying any passenger on board.
A spokesperson from Air Arabia said, “ferry flights had been given the approval to go back to their homeland.” Ferry flight indicates those flights which are scheduled to return without passengers to its center. According to the PCAA’s official Twitter handle, there is no change to the closure of Pakistan Airspace which remains until 0800 EST (5 pm UAE time) on March 1. Dubai and Abu Dhabi Airports claimed that all the flight to and from the UAE carrying passengers were dismissed until additional information that they were helping the affected guests.
However, Etihad Airways has confirmed that they do not have any ‘ferry flights’ returning to Abu Dhabi that they had no flights on the ground in Pakistan. On Thursday, suddenly after Pakistan had blocked its airspace amid tensions with India, thousands of travelers across the world were left stranded. Near about 30 flights were canceled by Thai Airways which affected almost 5,000 passengers.
The Airline authority tweeted on their Twitter page that “All THAI flights from Bangkok to Europe departing near midnight of 27 FEB through early 28 FEB and from Europe to Bangkok departing on 27 FEB have been canceled due to Pakistan airspace closure.”
