Fly Dubai Airlines is expected to resume flights to Afghanistan within a month, said the Ministry of Transportation and Civil Aviation (MTCA).
The MTCA said that some other airlines are also expected to resume flights to Afghanistan as the new contracts have provided the airports with standard services.
This comes as the “Simple Flying” website reported that Turkish Airlines will resume flights to Kabul and Mazar-e-Sharif in March of next year.
"The private and commercial companies are resuming their flights, depending on (the number of) passengers,” said Imamuddin Ahmadi, a spokesman for the MTCA.
Ahmadi said that the new contracts have paved the way for international companies to come and assess the activities of the airports in Afghanistan.
“It was decided that they (Fly Dubai) will resume ticket booking for flights. It will take around one to one-and-a-half months until their system is restored, and they will resume flights within one month,” said the deputy head of MTCA, Ghulam Jailani Wafa.
The travel agencies said that due to a lack of major airlines, the price of tickets has increased.
“It has been more than one year that the business has dropped compared to before. Previously there were foreign flights,” said Mohammad Haseeb Roshandal, head of a travel agency.
“The business has dropped,” said Najibullah, head of a travel agency.
