IndiGo flight enters Pakistan airspace

Earlier in June this year, a Srinagar-Jammu IndiGo flight had entered Pakistan's airspace. According to the carrier the flight was forced to enter Pakistani airspace in view of the bad weather. Later, the IndiGo 6e-2124 flight was diverted to Amritsar. 

As per the airline's official, the authorities concerned in both countries were informed about the same before the flight entered Pakistan airspace. Following this, the diversion of the flight was well coordinated by Jammu and Lahore ATCs.
