Use of Afghan Airspace by Intl Aircraft Down 80%

Officials from the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation (MTCA) says that in twenty-four hours, sixty to seventy planes pass through the country airspace, and Afghanistan earns $700 from each plane passing through the country’s airspace.

Based on reports, in the previous government, in 24 hours, around 300 planes were crossing over the country’s airspace. This shows a significant decrease in the number of airplanes flying over Afghanistan’s airspace.

According to the officials of the MTCA, the country airspace is safe for the planes.

“In these days, the figures show that around 60 to 70 flights pass through our airspace in twenty-four hours,” said Ghulam Jailani Wafa, deputy director of the MTAC said.

According to the officials, once a foreign company take control of the technical aspect of country’s airports – which is under negotiations by now --- flights over the airspace of the country will increase.

“When we provide good services, it will be cheaper for the airlines to pass through Afghanistan’s airspace and will pass through it,” said Emamuddin Ahmadi, a spokesman of the ministry said.

In the meantime, the former deputy minister of transport and civil aviation says that most of the international airlines have lost trust in Afghanistan’s airspace and have changed their routes

“Currently, the international airlines do not consider the airspace of Afghanistan safe, so they have changed all their routes,” said Imamuddin Varimach, former deputy minister of transport and aviation.

According to the statistics of MTCA, Afghanistan has six air corridors, many of which connect South Asia to Central Asia.
