font size    

Senior officials from Pakistani and Indian Civil Aviation Wednesday failed to reach any agreement to increase number of passenger flights as well as to find more air routes in two countries.

A joint statement issued at the conclusion of the two-day talks in the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi agreed to continue discussions.

"In-depth discussions were held on adding more destinations, designation of multiple airlines and increasing frequency of flights," the statement said.

The talks, it added, were held in a "cordial" atmosphere which also reviewed the existing bilateral arrangements.

Next meeting will be held at mutually convenient date, the statement said.

At present, the two countries have flights between the Pakistani port city of Karachi and the Indian commercial city of Bombay as well between New Delhi and the Pakistani eastern city of Lahore.

The talks are part of the composite dialogue between Pakistan and India as well as a confidence building measure.
