At the Transportation and Aviation Institute's graduation ceremony, Hamidullah Akhundzada, the acting minister of transportation and civil aviation, said that twenty foreign flights daily are using the nation's airports.
Speaking at the ceremony, Akhundzada stressed the need for Afghanistan to be self-sufficient in the civil and aviation sectors, adding that thirty students had been sent to Uzbekistan to study to advance the aviation industry.
“Through this institute, we maintain the nation's international airports' operational status, and currently these airports are active for domestic and foreign flights, 20 international flights are made each day from these airports,” Akhundzada added.
The Minister of Higher Education, Neda Mohammad Nadim, said during the graduation ceremony of the students of the Transportation and Aviation Institute that work should be left to specialists, and that professionals should be appointed in each department.
Speaking at the ceremony, Nadim promised to cooperate in improving the capacity of the students of the institute.
"We have a commitment in this field for work to be given to those who suit the position. No one else can do what an engineer does, so there is a need for professionals who should be employed there," Nadim said.
The graduates of the Transportation and Aviation Institute asked the Islamic Emirate to provide them with employment opportunities.
"We ask the Islamic Emirate to provide job opportunities for these graduates who studied for two years and worked hard,” said Shahir Sutanzada, a graduate.
