United Airlines reroutes flights over Afghanistan following Taliban taking over Kabul

Late on Sunday, United Airlines said it is rerouting some flights to avoid Afghanistan airspace following the Taliban taking control of the presidential palace in Kabul.

The Pakistan-backed terrorist group has rapidly gained control over territory in Afghanistan after U.S. President Joe Biden decided to pack up U.S. troops from the country.

On Monday, western nations scrambled to evacuate their citizens from Kabul airport which saw thousands of people trying to board flights in an attempt to escape the savagery of the Taliban.

“Due to the dynamic nature of the situation we have begun routing affected flights around Afghanistan airspace,” said a United spokeswoman in a statement.

The changes impacts several of United’s India-bound flight.

In July, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration imposed new flight restrictions over Afghanistan for U.S. airlines and other U.S. operators.
