Civilian flights resume at Jalalabad airport in Afghanistan The airport, located in Nangarhar province, has served the U.S. military and other foreign troops for two decades. The Taliban’s Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation has announced that it will operate 3-4 flights a week from here.

‘The resumption of civilian flights from Nangarhar Airport is a good start. It is a major source of income in the eastern provinces of Laghman, Nuristan, Kunar and Nangarhar, ”said Imam Mohammad Warimach, deputy minister for transport and civil aviation. The ministry said more facilities would be set up at the airport.

“Once the Islamic Emirates came to power, we reactivated the airport and provided all the necessary facilities,” ministry spokesman Imamuddin Warimach said.

Meanwhile, industrialists have demanded the resumption of international flights from Nangahar province. She said international travel could improve the country’s economy.

‘I urge Islamic Emirates officials to start international flights from Jalalabad Airport. Once the service starts, we can export our goods from Afghanistan, ”Tolo News quoted businessman Salmay Azimi as saying.
