PIA to restart business flights to Kabul from Monday – World

The Pakistan Worldwide Airways (PIA) will resume flights from Islamabad to Kabul subsequent week, a spokesman informed AFP on Saturday, turning into the primary international business service for the reason that Taliban seized power final month.

Kabul airport was severely broken throughout a chaotic evacuation of over 120,000 folks that ended with the withdrawal of US forces on August 30. The Taliban have been scrambling to get it working once more with Qatari technical help.

“We’ve received all technical clearances for flight operations,” PIA spokesman Abdullah Hafeez Khan informed AFP.

“Our first business aircraft… is scheduled to fly from Islamabad to Kabul on September 13.” Khan mentioned the service would depend upon demand.

“We’ve acquired 73 requests that are very encouraging… from humanitarian reduction businesses and journalists,” he mentioned.

Within the final two days, Qatar Airways has operated two constitution flights out of Kabul, carrying largely foreigners and Afghans who missed being taken out throughout the evacuation.
An Afghan airline resumed home flights final week.

The PIA had on Aug 16 suspended its flights to Afghanistan as a result of unsure safety scenario within the war-ravaged nation and the mess prevailing at Kabul airport’s apron.
