The Taliban authorities in Afghanistan appealed on Sunday for international flights to be resumed, promising full cooperation with airlines.

“As the problems at Kabul International Airport have been resolved and the airport is fully operational for domestic and international flights, the IEA affirms all airlines of its full cooperation,” he mentioned.

The airport, which was broken throughout the evacuation, has since been reopened with the help of technical groups from Qatar and Turkey.

While some airlines together with Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) have been providing restricted companies and a few folks have been in a position to get locations on flights, costs have been reported to be many occasions increased than regular.

PIA has affirmed that it will resume flights from Islamabad to Kabul despite the Taliban control.

“We have got all technical clearances for flight operations. Our first commercial plane, (an) Airbus A320, is scheduled to fly from Islamabad to Kabul on September 13,” said PIA spokesman Abdullah Hafeez Khan.
