A Pakistan Global Airways (PIA) airplane carrying a handful of passengers touched down at Kabul airport Monday, the initial global professional flight to land since the Taliban retook electrical power in Afghanistan on August 15.
“There was barely any person on the plane, all around 10 men and women… possibly extra staff than passengers,” claimed an AFP journalist aboard the flight from Islamabad.
A PIA spokesman stated at the weekend that the airline was keen to resume common business solutions, but it was way too before long to say how commonly flights involving the two capitals would work.
Kabul airport was severely ruined in the course of a chaotic evacuation of extra than 120,000 people today that finished with the withdrawal of US forces on August 30. The Taliban have been scrambling to get it running once again with specialized assistance from Qatar and other nations.
Qatar Airways operated many constitution flights out of Kabul last week, carrying largely foreigners and Afghans who missed out on the evacuation.
An Afghan airline resumed domestic expert services on September 3.
