The flights will take place every week on Monday and Friday, according to the spokeswoman, who also stated that ATR planes will be used for the flights. The Cabinet’s Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) authorised $130 million in cash support for the national carrier on Wednesday.
Due to pandemic and unprecedented travel bans and lockdowns implemented by many nations, the airline has seen a considerable drop in sales and financial flows, according to the ECC.
The committee also accepted an upgrade to the existing approved guarantee, which will help PIA overcome its financial difficulties.
Earlier in the day, the new Afghan administration called the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to request authorization for Afghanistan Airlines Ariana and Kam Air to fly scheduled flights.
