Pakistan International Airlines is fully prepared to resume its flights to neighboring Afghanistan, the CEO of the national carrier said on Friday.
Speaking to journalists, Arshad Malik said that PIA was fully prepared for the Kabul operation but added that war insurance charges were one of the impediments in resuming regular flights to the Afghan capital.
“There are security and radar issues at the Kabul airport as well.”
He said that he also took up the matter with Afghan officials in a recently held meeting, adding that a solution is expected to be reached by the end of the month.
Last month, the national carrier suspended flights to Kabul over Taliban authorities’ “unprofessional attitude”.
“Our flights frequently faced undue delays because of the unprofessional attitude of the Kabul aviation authorities,” Abdullah Hafeez Khan, the PIA spokesman told AFP.
