Low-cost carrier AirAsia has issued travel alerts for its north India destinations as tensions between India and Pakistan escalate.

“We are closely monitoring the situation in northern India and any impact to our Amritsar and Srinagar services. 

"Guests are encouraged to monitor their flight status on our website,” the airline said on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Indian Airlines reportedly halted services to several north Indian cities, namely Amritsar, Chandigarh, Dehradum, Jammu, Leh and Srinagar.

News agency AP also tweeted that Pakistan’s Civil Aviation has said it shut its airspace to all commercial flights, as tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad have snowballed since a terror attack in Pulwama on Feb 14 that killed over 40 over people and injured dozens more.

According to reports, the Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the attack.
