Because of “inappropriate actions by the Civil Aviation Authority of Afghanistan and the Taliban regime,” Pakistan International Airlines is considering suspending flights to Afghanistan.
Afghan staff’s behaviour with the PIA crew was “unprofessional” and “inappropriate,” according to PIA’s official. “We have raised these concerns in front of high-level authorities as well” he stated.
The representative stated that a final judgment on the matter would be made in a few days.
Here it is pertinent to mention that following the Taliban takeover, PIA was the first airline to fly an international flight to Afghanistan.
Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed stated on Monday that a separate Afghanistan desk has been formed at the Prime Minister’s House on the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
It will ensure international coordination of humanitarian aid in the neighbouring countries while also preventing negative spillover into Pakistan.
Previously, the Foreign Ministry established an inter-ministerial cell to offer on-arrival visas to Afghans intending to exit the country.
Fawad Chaudhry, Federal Information Minister also stated that any movement of Media Officials, Journalists and International Organisation personnel to Kabul will be facilitated by Pakistan.
