    PIA To Restart Commercial Flights To Kabul From Monday 6155
    Description: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will resume flights from Islamabad to Kabul next week, a spokesman told AFP on Saturday, becoming the first foreign commercial service since the Taliban seized power last month. Kabul airport was severely damaged during a chaotic evacuation of over 120,000 people that ended with the withdrawal of US forces on August 30. The Taliban have been scrambling to get it operating again with Qatari technical assistance.

An Afghan airline resumed domestic flights last week.
