Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will resume flights from Islamabad to Kabul next week, becoming the first foreign commercial service since the Taliban seized power last month.
Kabul airport was severely damaged during a chaotic evacuation of over 120,000 people that ended with the withdrawal of US forces on August 30th.
The Taliban have been scrambling to get it operating again with Qatari technical assistance.
PIA spokesman told AFP, “We have got all technical clearances for flight operations.”
He said the service would depend on demand.
In the last two days Qatar Airways has operated two charter flights out of Kabul, carrying mostly foreigners and Afghans who missed being taken out during the evacuation.
While an Afghan airline resumed domestic flights last week.
