PIA started considering suspending flights to Afghanistan

ISLAMABAD:  Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has started considering the decision to stop the Kabul flight operations, in the wake of interruption in flight operations and lack of cooperation from the Afghan government.

The national flag carrier is one of the few airlines operating flights to the neighbouring country.

According to media reports, the PIA is also facilitating the international community in facilitating evacuation efforts and relief goods supplies to the country.

Sources said the national flag carrier would take the decision related to halting flight operations in the coming days. They added that authorities have decided to take up the matter with higher authorities.

The PIA administration’s reaction came after the “unprofessional” behaviour of the Taliban government and the Afghan Civil Aviation.

Sources said that the PIA has decided to take up the matter of interruption in flight operations and lack of cooperation from the Afghan government with the higher authorities.

Meanwhile, the Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (ACAA) called on PIA and Kam Air airlines to bring down the fares of Kabul-Islamabad flights back to the pre-August 15 rates.

The ACAA also threatened to stop flights between Kabul and Islamabad if the airlines do not comply.
