India has issued a crucial notification declaring a no-fly zone around the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, located near the strategically vital Malacca Strait. This temporary airspace restriction has been put in place explicitly for “Missile Firing” activities and will be effective from October 10, 2023, to October 12, 2023. The designated no-fly zone covers an area spanning 445 kilometers.
This move aligns with past missile firing exercises conducted in the region, primarily focusing on the testing of the BrahMos Supersonic cruise missile. The BrahMos missile, known for its exceptional speed and precision, has been regularly tested by both the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Indian Navy in the vicinity of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
The strategic importance of this area cannot be overstated. Situated near the Malacca Strait, often referred to as a crucial “choke point,” the Andaman & Nicobar Islands offer India a unique vantage point. In the event of a conflict between India and China, this location becomes strategically significant for the Indian military.
