Pakistan has actually enabled an Afghan airline company to run its flights from Islamabad to Kabul, a Civil Aeronautics Authority (CAA) authorities claimed on Sunday.
Kam Air– Afghanistan’s largest private airline company– will certainly operate three flights a week, ending up being the first Covering airline to operate outside Afghanistan after the Taliban requisition, Irfan Sabir, supervisor of CAA Air Transport, informed Anadolu Agency.
The consent, he stated, has actually been given on the demand of Kam Air, which, previously, is the only Covering airline to get the flight permit.
Initially, he stated, that the airline could only operate chartered flights from Islamabad to Kabul due to minimal passengers. In the coming days, he included, it could start commercial trips
Flight operations in Afghanistan came to a halt after the Taliban requisition of Kabul on Aug 15. The domestic flights were resumed on Sept 5.

Pakistan’s state-run Pakistan International Airlines was the very first airline company to run the first worldwide flight to Afghanistan on Sept 13, after the Taliban takeover.
Previously in the day, the Taliban prompted international airlines to return to trips to Kabul, saying all technological concerns at the nation’s main flight terminal have actually been dealt with.
Facilities at Kabul airport were severely harmed in the chaotic evacuation of more than 120,000 people that ended August 30 with the withdrawal of the last US troops.
Since then just charter trips have actually been operating, although Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), Iran’s Mahan Air and Afghanistan’s Kam Air have run a minimal number of special flights.
Today airlines such as PIA and Kam Air are charging more than $1,200 for a one-way, 40-minute trip from Kabul to Islamabad.
