The UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) on Friday partially resumed flights of national airlines to Pakistan, lifting the suspension on flights to Karachi, Islamabad and Peshawar, as the Pakistani airspace calmed down following an aerial incident over the disputed Kashmir region, ONA reports quoting sputniknews.

"In view of the recent developments and return to calm in the Pakistani airspace, the GCAA decided to cancel suspension of flights and allow aircraft registered in the UAE to resume flights to Karachi, Islamabad and Peshawar", the organization wrote on Twitter.

The GCAA also noted that the situation in other airports would be assessed later. The ban on flights from the UAE to Pakistan was introduced on Wednesday "to ensure safety of passengers and national airlines".
