PIA spokesman Abdullah Khan stated in an announcement that the service was a “special flight” to create “goodwill” with the folks of Afghanistan and to “strengthen humanitarian efforts.”
The spokesman clarified to CNN that this was “not an aid flight.”
PIA stated the Boeing 777 plane departed Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital metropolis, at 6:45 a.m. native time after particular preparations had been made by Afghanistan’s civil aviation authorities and PIA’s workers.
Foreign journalists traveled into the Afghan capital on the flight whereas workers of the World Bank have been introduced again to Islamabad on the return leg, the spokesman advised CNN.
These flights sign that no less than some foreign nationals who need to go away Afghanistan will probably be ready to take action, following weeks of uncertainty. Civilians have been left scrambling to search out protected passage from the nation since the Taliban takeover in mid-August threw a US-led evacuation effort into confusion.
