According to a spokesman for the Taliban caretaker government’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Kabul Airport is now fully operational for international flights and all airliners can restart airlifts.
“As the problems at Kabul International Airport have been resolved and the airport is fully operational for domestic and international flights, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan assures all airlines of its full cooperation and expects all airlines and countries that had previously flown to Kabul to resume their flights as before,” spokesman Abdul Qahar Balkhi said in a statement.
He stated that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has pledged its complete cooperation in flying flights more than 40 days after the Taliban took control.
During the evacuation of US-led forces and American nationals on August 31, the Kabul airport was damaged and many of its infrastructures were destroyed.
Despite a long suspension in flights since mid-last month, airport authorities confirmed that the Kabul airport has received planes carrying humanitarian aid from Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Pakistan, as well as a number of commercial flights from Pakistan, Iran, and Qatar in recent weeks.
