The NOTAM (Notice to Airmen to alert aircraft pilots of potential hazards along a flight route) which was earlier issued by Indian authorities has been withdrawn. The authorities have allowed commercial operations to all the airports which were shut after Pakistan Air Force’s F-16 fighter jets violated the Indian Aerospace.
DGCA confirmed that operations at all the airports have been resumed “as of now”.

Earlier today, the DGCA issued a NOTAM saying that operations at the airports in Pathankot, Srinagar, Amritsar, Jammu, Leh, Shimla, Kullu Manali, Kangra, and Pithoragarh will be shut till further notice.
The action was taken after the Pakistani fighter jet entered into the Indian side after the Indian Air Force, on Tuesday morning, took pre-emptive action and bombed Jaish-e-Mohammed’s terror training centre in Pakistan. It is reported that in a 21-minute pre-emptive strike, around 300 terrorists were neutralised.
