Amid tension, Pakistan’s airspace closure costs eight million dollar loss to Afghanistan.

The Afghanistan civil aviation authority on Monday revealed that the country has suffered a loss of eight million dollars due to closure of Pakistan’s airspace amid last month’s tension between India and Pakistan.
In February, Pakistan had closed its airspace in the midst of rising tensions following ghastly Pulawama terror attack in which over 40 CRPF personnel had lost their lives.
The Afghan airlines have been using Irans route for Kabul-New Delhi flights but it has increased the costs as well as the time by two times. The prices, airlines say, have gone up to almost 600 dollar from around 350 dollar, Tolo news reported.
