Air Traffic To Resume In Kashmir After 2 Months

For first phase, 13 flights to be made operational after suspended as part of measures to curb spread of coronavirus.

After two-month hiatus due to coronavirus, the passenger air traffic in the Indian-administered Kashmir is set to resume from Monday, a civil aviation official said.
Santosh Dhoke, director of Airports Authority of India (AAI) Srinagar, told Anadolu Agency that as many as six airlines will serve as of Monday with minimum 13 flights to be made operational in the first phase from May 25 to June 30.
"For the first phase, only a limited number of flights are allowed but we hope more flights will be allowed as soon as the situation improves," said Dhoke.
Earlier the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation allowed commercial domestic flight operations to resume across India as of May 25.
Meanwhile, 20 coronavirus deaths have been reported in the region so far while the cases have surged to more than 1,400. The recoveries from the infection have stood at 749.
Disputed region
Kashmir is held by India and Pakistan in parts and claimed by both in full. A small sliver of Kashmir is also held by China.
Since they were partitioned in 1947, the two countries have fought three wars -- in 1948, 1965 and 1971 -- two of them over Kashmir.
Some Kashmiri groups in Jammu and Kashmir have been fighting against Indian rule for independence, or unification with neighboring Pakistan.
According to several human rights organizations, thousands of people have reportedly been killed in the conflict in the region since 1989. -
