The U.S. has banned its airlines from flying over most of Afghanistan

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has banned American airlines from flying over most of Afghanistan without a special permit, CNN reports, citing an FAA statement.

Earlier, Pentagon spokesman General Kenneth McKenzie said that U.S. troops had been withdrawn from the country, the mission in the republic was completed. The FAA said that the U.S. no longer controls air traffic at the Kabul airport.

“U.S. civil aviation operators can continue to use one high-altitude route near the eastern border (of the country) for overflights. Any U.S. civil aviation operator who wants to fly to Afghanistan, or fly from there, or fly over it, must obtain prior permission from the FAA,” the TV channel quotes a statement from the department.
