Taliban Warns PIA to Reduce Fares or Face Ban in Afghanistan

An official notification issued from the Afghan ministry said that it received “scores of complaint” that the PIA and the Kam Air are charging Rs200,000 and $2,700 respectively for a two-way ticket between Islamabad and Kabul.

The statement comes as the PIA on Thursday said that it was suspending flights from Kabul after what it called “heavy handed” interference by Taliban authorities, including arbitrary rule changes and intimidation of staff.

A senior official of the Afghan aviation ministry told The Express Tribune that the Taliban government took the unilateral decision after Pakistan Embassy in Kabul paid no heed to their complaints.
