India-Afghanistan cargo flights take-off

The first air cargo service between India and Afghanistan was launched today by Ariana Afghan Airlines.
Indian ambassador to Afghanistan Manpreet Vohra confirmed on his twitter account that the first return flight was set to leave Kabul for Delhi today.
The service will bypass the land crossing between the two countries via Pakistan.
Indian press reports said that Pakistan has put limitations on the amount of cargo Afghanistan is allowed to export to India, while in the opposite direction a complete ban is in place. However, the flight will use Pakistani airspace.
Initially, the service will fly once or twice a month, but this could increase if there is enough demand.
