The Islamic Emirate on Tuesday signed a contract for ‘ground handling’ operations with GAAC, a UAE-based company.
The contract was signed by the deputy minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, Ghulam Jailani Wafa, and a representative of the GAAC company in the presence of Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, first deputy prime minister.
Speaking at the ceremony during the signing of the contract, Mullah Baradar said that security is good in the country and the Islamic Emirate is ready to cooperate with investing countries.
With the signing of this contract, Baradar said that all international airlines will start their flights to Afghanistan in a safe and reliable manner.
After the Islamic Emirate swept into power, several rounds of negotiations have been held between with companies in Qatar, Tukey and the UAE over managing technicals operation of the Afghan airports.
“When we were in a critical and an emergency situation, the UAE helped us with technical cooperation and repaired the terminals for free,” said Ghulam Jailani Wafa, the Minister Transportation and Civil Aviation. “The GAAC company is an international company which provides the aviation services in the UAE itself.”
