India approaches ICAO after Pakistan denied Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special flight use of its airspace
India has recently approached the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) after Pakistan denied Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special flight the use of its airspace. This is the 3rd time in recent weeks that Islamabad has refused to allow Indian leaders to use its airspace after turning down last month requests by President Ram Nath Kovind and Mr. Modi. According to official sources, such overflight clearances for VVIP special flights were granted routinely by “any normal country” as per prescribed ICAO guidelines. ICAO’s headquarters is located in the Quartier International of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
