Emamuddin Ahmadi spokesperson of the ministry said that most of the flights are made from the Kabul, Herat, Balkh and Kandahar airports to some neighboring and regional countries, according to the statement.
“Currently we have flights to Uzbekistan, Turkiye, Abu Dhabi, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, China and some other countries,” the statement quoted Ahmadi as saying.
He added that in 24 hours 100 airplanes cross over our country’s airspace and every flight pays $700 to Afghanistan”.
Meanwhile, the Chamber of Commerce and Investment said that due to lack of air corridors Afghanistan’s domestic products cannot reach the world markets.
“After the Islamic Emirate takeover, economic restrictions rose and international airline companies including Fly Emirate and Turkish Airlines stopped their activities,” said Khanjan Alokozai, a member of the Chamber of Commerce. According to the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation, currently, Afghan traders are using the country’s air cargoes for their exports and imports to India, China, Saudi Arabia and the United Arabic Emirates.
