Operations at all nine airports, which were shut for civilian traffic, resumes

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has ordered to resume services at nine airports, including Srinagar, Jammu and Leh, in north India as of now. The services were temporarily suspended in view of heightened tensions between India and Pakistan. 

"We are strictly following all guidelines of the Air Force, and we will continue to do that," Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha said on the sidelines of an event in New Delhi. 

Asked how many flights have been impacted, Sinha said, "I don't have the number. But, as I said, we are following the instructions of the air force."
