Afghanistan’s ministry of foreign affairs in a statement said that the Kabul International Airport is fully ready to host international flights and asked the foreign airlines to resume flights.

The ministry has promised to be doing all the cooperation needed in this regard as all the technical issues have been resolved.

Though the airport has been fully functional for both domestic and international flights over ten days ago, the international flights except for Pakistan, Iran, and Qatar are yet to be resumed.

Spokesperson of the ministry of foreign affairs of Afghanistan Abdulqahar Balkhi has written on his Twitter post that the absence of international flights from Kabul has created many problems for the Afghan people and asked for the resumption of flights.

Kabul International Airport took nearly a month and approximately $20 million to be fully ready for domestic and international flights after the US completed its evacuation mission from the airport.

Currently, the airport is only busy with domestic flights, flights to Iran and Pakistan, and some chartered flights to Qatar.
