China Southern flight from Guangzhou to Lahore was enroute over Indian territory when Pakistan closed its air space on 27th feb. The flight was diverted to Delhi where it waited for couple of hours and then returned to Guangzhou. CZ has not operated this route since then.

I am pretty surprised that some Chinese airlines operating flights to Pakistan have not yet offered to fly Pakistani PAX to Europe, when there is a good potential. They are expanding their networks globally but whenever you search flights from EU to Pakistan, hardly any result shows up despite the fact some Chinese airlines are flying to KHI, ISB.

Apparently China Southern will resume CZ6037/CZ6038 direct service between Guangzhou and Lahore starting 30th March 2020. China Southern flight from Guangzhou to Lahore was enroute over Indian territory when Pakistan closed its air space on 27th feb. The flight was diverted to Delhi where it waited for couple of hours and then returned to Guangzhou. CZ has not operated this route since then. Also important to mention CZ was using Boeing 737MAX planes for this flight which have been grounded around the world after Lion air and Ethiopian Air crashes. CZ probably is still waiting for replacement aircrafts.
