17 July 2019 Current Events Pakistan Reopens the Airspace

The recent news reports state that flights connecting Delhi and the west will encounter a drop in travel time by four hours, as Pakistan has decided to reopen its airspace after 140 days. Meanwhile, it was closed on February 27, 2019, because of Indian Air Force's strike on the terror camp of Balakot in Pakistan. This led to longer routes for aircrafts to and from the western countries, resulting in higher consumption of fuel and longer flight times. Notice issued at 12:41am by the Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority to airmen (NOTAM) conveyed that this airspace has been reopened once again for coordinating all types of civil traffic published on air traffic service (ATS) routes.


10 Dead Due to Building Collapse in Mumbai

As per recent news updates, around ten people lost their lives due to a building collapse in the Dongri area of Southern Mumbai. Moreover, many of them got trapped in the debris of the four storey building. The reason behind the collapse is still not clear. News reports state that the building was 100 years old. However, flooding in monsoon might have been an important factor for the collapse. Plight of India lies in the fact that, each year, approximately 2,000 people lose their lives in India in collapsing buildings. Dilapidated structures and poor construction are the vital factors responsible for such man-made hazards. Rescue teams from the department of fire are still looking for the ones trapped under mounds of debris.
