Indian Media is reporting that Indian government is considering to restrict its airspace for Pakistani airlines.
Indian government, however, is unsure about the move yet as its still in process of evaluating the loss Indian Operators will have to bear as each Indian flight, in response, will have to travel at least 1,000 KMs extra for all west-bound flights.
Press reports said that Prime Minister Modi asked for briefing on the matter and all related information has been submitted to the Prime Minister Office.
It maybe recalled that India is running through all possible options to show its mindless aggression against Pakistan.
During its war-madness, India first tried to block Pakistani waters but then backed off due to international pressure and in-viability of the plan.
Now again, out of war hysteria, India is hoping to block its airspace for Pakistani airlines — without thinking that its four operators (Air India, Jet, IndiGo and SpiceJet) fly over Pakistani airspace for western routers.
Estimates tell that Indian airlines will have to travel some 1,200 KMs extra to bypass Pakistani airspace, which will mean that each flight will have to remain in air for additional 90 minutes.
Move could cost Indian Airlines additional operational cost and in some cases additional human capital as flights with more than 10 hours will require two set of pilots, instead of one.
