Emirates’ first Afghanistan service to Kabul

EMIRATES is to launch daily passenger services to Khwaja Rawash Airport, Kabul, Afghanistan in December.
The capital city will be the first destination in Afghanistan served by the UAE airline.
The daily A340-500 passenger jet will offer new belly cargo opportunities for the carrier’s forwarder customers.
“Emirates has identified a demand for a premium service airline offering between Dubai and Kabul,” says Barry Brown, Emirates’ divisional senior vice-president, commercial operations, east.
“We will be able to offer excellent global connections via Dubai, particularly for the shipment of pharmaceuticals, perishable foodstuffs and construction materials,” he adds.
Kabul will become the 138th destination on the Emirates route network.
