Kabul airport suspends operations till further notice 1

New Delhi: All flights to and from the Kabul International Airport have been suspended until further notice due to large crowds seeking to flee Afghanistan, the national civil aviation authority said in a statement issued on Monday August 23.

“All flights at the Hamid Karzai International Airport are suspended until further notice. Passengers looking to fly to different regions around the country and abroad will be notified in advance when flights will be resumed. These measures are taken to avoid crowds and unrest in the airport,” read a statement published on the agency’s Facebook page, Tass reported.

The statement also stresses that the Afghan aviation authorities “are working hard for domestic and international flights to and from the Kabul airport to resume as soon as possible.”

The situation at the Kabul airport has remained tense ever since the Taliban fighters swept into Kabul without encountering any resistance, and gained full control over the Afghan capital within a few hours on August 15.
