Taliban Claims Over 100 Airplanes Cross Afghanistan's Airspace Daily

(MENAFN- Khaama Press) Officials at the Ministry of transport and Aviation of the Taliban claim that over 100 planes pass through Afghanistan's airspace every 24 hours, with a fee of $700 charged per plane.

Radio Television Afghanistan reported on Wednesday, June 19, that according to the Ministry of Transport and Aviation, with the commencement of international flights from Khost province, there are five international-standard airports across the country, handling 30 foreign flights daily.

Imamuddin Ahmadi, the Ministry of Transport and Aviation spokesperson, stated that the Nangarhar airport, which was used for military purposes years ago, is now ready for international flights.

Mr. Ahmadi added that between 100 and 120 planes pass through Afghanistan's airspace every 24 hours, with a fee of $700 per plane collected.

According to information from the Taliban Ministry of Transport and Aviation, there are 27 operational airports across Afghanistan, five of which are international and the rest local.

Following the Taliban's takeover of power in Afghanistan, most international airlines changed their routes and halted flights to the country; however, nearly three years later, some regional airlines have resumed their flights from Afghanistan.

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, the international community has not recognized the current regime, leading to the country's increasing isolation. This lack of recognition has resulted in severe economic sanctions and reduced foreign aid, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis.

The situation in Afghanistan has become dire, with widespread human rights violations and severe restrictions on women.

Women have been banned from education and employment, significantly affecting their rights and livelihoods. The humanitarian crisis is further deepened by food shortages, inadequate healthcare, and limited access to basic necessities, leaving millions in desperate need of assistance.
