ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) issued notification of partial restoration of flight operations in the country on Friday afternoon.

In a Twitter post, the CAA directed commuters to contact their airlines for information regarding flight times, as the airspace has been restored.

The airspace was closed on Wednesday following unrest at the country's northeast border with India when Pakistan Air Force claimed to shoot down two Indian fighter jets along the Line of Control.

The CAA said on Friday that airports in the country's capital Islamabad, northwest Peshawar, southwest Quetta and southern Karachi cities have been cleared for operation whereas the remaining airports in east Punjab province will be opened later.
