In a statement, Afghanistan’s airlines operator Ariana Afghan Airlines said, it has resumed some flights in Afghanistan between Kabul and three major provincial cities on Saturday.
The development comes in the wake of a technical team from Qatar reopening Kabul’s airport for aid and for domestic services.
In a post on Facebook, the airlines operator said, flights between Kabul Herat, Mazar-i Sharif and Kandahar have resumed.
“Ariana Afghan Airlines is proud to resume its domestic flights,” said the post.
According to a news bulletin from Qatar’s Al Jazeera news channel, Qatar’s ambassador to Afghanistan said, a technical team was able to reopen Kabul’s airport to receive aid.
Kabul Airport’s runway has also been repaired in cooperation with authorities in Afghanistan, said the ambassador.
For Afghanistan, the reopening of the airport is very important since it is its lifeline with the outside world; the airport also plays a vital role in connecting cities in the country’s mountainous territory.
