New Delhi:

India has allowed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's aircraft to use Indian Air Space, sources told ANI.

Imran Khan will be travelling to Sri Lanka on his maiden visit on February 23.

In 2019, Pakistan had denied opening its airspace for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's flights to the US and Saudi Arabia citing alleged human rights violations in Kashmir.

India took up the denial of permission to VVIP flight with an International Civil Aviation Organisation.

Under normal circumstances, VVIP aircrafts are granted permission by countries. However, Pakistan's denial of permission to VVIP aircraft was an aberration.
