Pakistan reopens airspace to all civil traffic
July 16, 2019
Pakistan reopened its airspace on 15 July to all civil traffic, ending around six months of restrictions that impacted aircraft flying over the country. The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority issued a NOTAM reopening the airspace shortly after 19:00 GMT allowing civil traffic to use all published air traffic routes. The country closed its airspace on 26 February after a flare-up in tensions with India over airstrikes in the disputed Kashmir region. While it has reopened some sections of its airspace, the area along Pakistan's eastern border with India had been closed indefinitely. That has resulted in airlines operating flights between Asia and Europe having to operate longer routes to avoid the area. Indian carriers have also been affected, with most northbound services usually transiting through the affected airspace.


Investigators probe another Belavia 737 excursion at Kiev
July 16, 2019
Investigators are probing an overrun by a Belavia Boeing 737-300 at Kiev's downtown Zhulhany airport late on 12 July.
The aircraft (EW-336PA) had been operating the carrier's B2847 service from Minsk and had touched down on runway 26 in darkness at about 23:40. Meteorological data from Zhulhany at the time indicates variable winds, the presence of cumulonimbus cloud and subsequent light rain showers. The aircraft continued past the threshold of the opposite-direction runway 08 by around 300m, coming to rest of soft ground having passed over approach lighting, according to video images purportedly taken at the scene and distributed on social media. None of the 139 passengers and five crew members were injured, the airport's operator states. The airport has only a single runway, which restricted operations until around 14:00 the following day.
