We bring you a short snippet of information if you are travelling to Pakistan or India this week. RPS Partnership has just returned from Islamabad and is happy to chat informally if you have any issues with travel there in the coming days.
As tensions mount between Pakistan and India, travellers to the region may be affected due to the ongoing conflict between the governments, so worth checking whether your flight is ok for travel this week.
Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has declared an emergency across all airports following the escalating tension between India and Pakistan.
