Turkish Airlines to restart flights to Afghanistan

Must read

Turkish Airlines will resume flights to Kabul on May 21, its first since the US forces’ chaotic withdrawal in 2021 when the Afghan capital’s airport was trashed during the mass evacuation of civilians, Agence France-Presse reported.

“Our world is expanding, we are starting flights from Kabul to İstanbul four times a week,” Turkish Airlines said in its online commercial.

The service between İstanbul and the Afghan capital will operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

The United Arab Emirates-based airline flydubai became the first international carrier to resume flights to the country in November 2023.

The full operation of Kabul’s airport is seen as crucial to reviving Afghanistan’s shattered economy.

Apart from flydubai, Afghanistan’s Kam Air and Ariana Afghan Airlines currently operate limited services from Kabul to destinations including Dubai, Moscow, Islamabad and İstanbul.
