The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Saturday decided to close runway of the Nawabshah Airport amid the presence of locusts in the area.

“The runway of the Nawabshah Airport will remain closed for the landing of the flights,” the NOTAM released by the CAA reads.

According to the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), 62 districts of the country have been affected by the locusts.
