The aircraft belongs to Pakistan International Airlines.

The first plane that made an international commercial flight landed at the Kabul airport on Monday after the U.S. Armed Forces’ withdrawal and the radical Taliban movement came to power in Afghanistan. Agence France Presse reported this.

According to him, the aircraft belongs to the airline Pakistan International Airlines, which arrived from Islamabad. It is claimed that “there were only about 10 people on board; apparently, there were more crew members than passengers.”

The Taliban launched a large-scale operation to establish control over

Afghanistan after the U.S. announced its decision to withdraw forces from the country in the spring. On August 15, President Ashraf Ghani resigned and left the Islamic Republic, and the Taliban entered Kabul without a fight. American troops completely left Afghanistan on the night of August 31.

The runway and terminals of the Kabul airport were severely damaged due to the chaos that reigned in the air harbor and the terrorist attack committed near it on August 26. Technical specialists from Qatar and Turkey help to establish the operation of the airport. On September 4, the first domestic flights took off from Kabul to Mazar-I-Sharif, Kandahar, and Herat. On September 9, the first plane since the withdrawal of the U.S. Armed Forces carried out an international flight from Kabul to Doha; 115 people were on board, including citizens of some Western states. On Saturday, the head of the capital’s air harbor administration, Abdul Hadi Hamdan, said that it would fully restore domestic and international air traffic within a few days.
