The Ariana Afghan Airlines reported nearly $3.4 million profit in last year despite COVID-19 crisis, officials of the government-owned company said.
The company faced $350,000 loss last year, officials said.
“We managed to overcome the losses despite the challenges that emerged from lockdown and the coronavirus,” said Salim Rahimi, head of business department of Ariana Afghan Airlines.
Representatives of the aviation companies said the government should provide more support to the aviation companies.
“Kam Air and Ariana Afghan Airlines have employed thousands of people and they should be supported,” said Mahmoud Shah Habibi, head of aviation companies union.
Alem Ibrahimi, CEO of the company, said they have achieved another milestone. He said 2020 was a year of hardship and resilience for the Aviation industry.
