The Taliban’s Ministry of Transport and Aviation states that Turkish Airlines intends to resume its flights to Afghanistan soon.

The spokesperson for this ministry wrote on its social media platform X, that there are no technical or airport-related issues for the company to begin its flights.

Imamuddin Ahmadi stated that all facilities for foreign airlines are available at all Afghanistan airports.

Following the Taliban’s resurgence in Afghanistan, many foreign airlines, including Turkish Airlines, suspended their flights to the country.

However, in January last year, Emirates Airlines resumed its flights to Afghanistan. Still, due to passenger shortages and existing issues in Afghanistan, the flights of these companies show a considerable reduction.

It is said that difficulties in obtaining visas for Afghans, especially traders, are one of the reasons for the decrease in air travel.

During the early days of the Taliban’s rule in Afghanistan, the Taliban’s Civil Aviation Authority announced that 60 to 70 aircraft were passing through Afghanistan airspace every 24 hours.

This is while before the collapse of the previous government, according to official statistics, over 250 flights were operated daily from Afghanistan airspace.
