PIA considering to suspend flight operations to Afghanistan


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) administration has begun considering to suspend flight operations to Afghanistan against the unprofessional behavior of the Taliban government and Afghan civil aviation.

According to sources, Afghan Taliban officials are interfering in the PIA flight operation and Afghan civil aviation is not cooperating, which is why it has decided to take the matter to a higher level.

As a result, the PIA management is considering suspending flight operations to Afghanistan and the decision to suspend flight operations to Afghanistan may be taken in the next few days.

According to sources, the attitude of Afghan civil aviation and the Taliban government is unprofessional, while the non-cooperation of Afghan civil aviation has made it difficult for the national airline (PIA) to continue its flight operations to Afghanistan.

Last month, the first chartered commercial flight by Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) had landed at Kabul Airport after the new interim setup in Afghanistan. 

The PIA crew took foreign journalists to Kabul and returned with a team of the World Bank and international media organizations. This was the first international passenger flight after the Taliban took control of the control last month.
