Turkish Airlines restarts flights to Kabul

Turkish Airlines resumes flights to Kabul from May 21, with up to four weekly connections connecting the Afghan capital to Istanbul. This announcement marks a significant step in the normalization of air services at Kabul airport, hard hit by the events of August 2021 during the mass evacuation of civilians. THY thus becomes the second airline, after Flydubai and Air Arabia, to resume operations to and from Kabul.

In addition to strengthening its operations in Kabul, Turkish Airlines also launched a new long-haul flight to Denver, United States, this month. This development is part of a series of initiatives aimed at expanding its global network.

The resumption of activities at Kabul airport is seen as a key element for the revitalization of the Afghan economy. Local companies, Kam Air and Ariana Afghan Airlines, already operate flights there to limited destinations such as Dubai, Moscow, Islamabad and Istanbul, gradually contributing to Afghanistan’s reintegration into the global air network.
