UAE company to operate flight services at airports in Afghanistan : Taliban

Date:

ISLAMABAD, Sep 8 (AP) The Taliban and Abu Dhabi-based company GAAC Solutions on Thursday signed a contract to provide flight services for the Emirati company and manage aircraft that land and take off at major airports in Afghanistan.

The Taliban said the flight guidance services agreement would include providing facilities at the country’s three major airports and training Afghan staff.

The agreement covers airports located in Kabul, Herat and Kandahar in southern Afghanistan. Kandahar was a stronghold of the Taliban during a 20-year war with US and NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) forces.

The Taliban have faced international criticism since taking over the country in August 2021 between the last weeks of the withdrawal of US and NATO troops from Afghanistan.

“Strengthening the economy is the government’s priority,” Taliban-appointed Deputy Prime Minister Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar said after the signing of the deal in Kabul on Thursday. This agreement will have a positive impact on the trade and economic development of the country.
