First Commercial Flight Links Afghanistan and UAE through Balkh Airport

Commercial flights between Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have officially commenced with the first flight departing from Balkh International Airport in Mazar-e-Sharif. The inaugural flight, which occurred today, carried sixteen tons of commercial goods from Afghanistan to the UAE. This marks the first commercial flight between the two countries since the establishment of the Islamic Emirate, operating through Mawlana Jalaluddin Mohammad Balkhi Airport.

This milestone is a result of three years of dedicated efforts by the Islamic Emirate and was kicked off with a flight by Fly Sky Airlines. A representative from the Cargo Company emphasized the necessity of an air corridor for the exchange of commercial goods between Afghanistan and the UAE, especially with the renewed commercial relations between the two nations. The establishment of this air corridor via Balkh Airport now addresses this need.

Abdullah Motmaen, the Customs Director of Mawlana Jalaluddin Mohammad Balkhi International Airport, expressed satisfaction with the successful collaboration between their team and the Cargo Company, culminating in the initiation of trade exchange through the international airport. Some of the goods imported from the UAE to Afghanistan through Balkh Airfield include electrical systems from Bayat Power Company.

Officials from the Balkh Chamber of Commerce and Investment have welcomed the introduction of this air corridor, seeing it as a vital catalyst for the growth and enhancement of trade relations between Afghanistan and the UAE. They believe that this development will contribute significantly to the economic development of Afghanistan.
