After two decades, Air Arabia resumes planes to Afghanistan.
Following a two-year withdrawal following the overthrow of the previous government, the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation of Afghanistan announced the restoration of Air Arabia airlines to Kabul’s international airports.
The ministry’s confirmation of the first Air Arabia trip, which touched down on Wednesday, heralded the start of regular airlines between Sharjah and Kabul.
This rise coincides with the Taliban’s efforts to repair air travel relationships that were cut off due to political unrest. Importantly, a deal reached in May gave GAAC Solutions, an Emirati organization, control over three Afghan flights, including those in Kandahar, Herat, and Kabul. Also, in November, Flydubai had resumed its planes to Kabul.
From Kabul, Kam Air and Ariana Afghan Airlines continue to fly to Istanbul, Dubai, Moscow, Islamabad, and other cities. This improved communication portends a potential resurgence of Afghanistan’s aerospace industry under Taliban rule. SOURCE: After two decades, Air Arabia resumes planes to Afghanistan.
