Pakistan allows Afghan Air to start flights from Islamabad: reports

ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority has reportedly allowed Afghan Air to operate flights from the country’s federal capital Islamabad.

Reports in local media quoting sources said the country’s top Aviation Authority granted Kam Air, the largest private Afghan airline, to start flight operation three times a week from Islamabad airport.

The development came as the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Transport in the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan approached Pakistani authorities for permission for two Afghan airlines, including Kam Air and Ariana Afghan Airlines. As of now, the other airline has not yet shared its flight schedule with the aviation regulator.

The letter from Afghan officials quoting by local media stated ‘the intention of this letter is to keep the smooth passenger movement between two countries based on the signed MoU and our National Carriers aimed to commence their schedule’.
