    KABUL, Dec 24, 2011: The Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) chief on Saturday voiced concern at the government's new aviation policy allowing more foreign airlines international flights from the Kabul airport.

    Currently, Fly Emirates, Fly Dubai, Gulf Air, Turkish Airlines, Indian Airlines, Air India, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), Asman Airlines, Azerbaijan Airlines and Qatar Airways are operating in Afghanistan, according to the Ministry of Transport and Aviation.

    Additionally, three national airlines -- the state-owned Ariana Afghan Airlines, Kam Air and Safi Airlines are also conducting domestic and international operations.

    The Ministry of Transport and Aviation says it is working on a policy that would allow more foreign airlines to carry out international flights from the Kabul Airport.
