New Delhi.Commercial flights between India and Afghanistan have been banned since August 15. However, some flights were definitely flagged off to evacuate Indians from the Taliban conflict and the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan. But since the Indians were brought home from there, no airline has been started so far. Indian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi has given a big statement on when the airline service will resume between the two countries.
Arindam Bagchi said I have no update on the resumption of flights. This is a complex and sensitive issue. There are many factors that need attention. He said that the government will make a decision on whether to start the airline again after considering all the aspects.
For information, let us tell you that in the past, the Taliban government of Afghanistan had written a letter to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Government of India, demanding the resumption of air service between India and Afghanistan. The Acting Minister of the Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority, Alhaj Hamidullah Akhunzada, wrote in the letter, “As you were recently informed that the Kabul airport was completely destroyed by US troops before returning to the US. The airport has once again become operational with the help of our partner Qatar. Information in this regard has been issued on September 6, 2021. After this, the minister appealed to resume flights between India and Afghanistan.
Even after receiving this letter from the Talibani government of Afghanistan, India has not given any kind of reply.
