The escalation between Pakistan and India is also affecting air traffic in the region. First, international flights that transited between Indian and Pakistani airspace got affected (see Flightradar24 image below). Shortly thereafter, Pakistan stopped its domestic and intercontinental flights from the airports of Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad, Sialkot and Islamabad but, according to Pakistan International Airline (PIA), all commercial air traffic has been suspended now. Air traffic in India is also heavily affected.
