Return flights would leave Islamabad on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 15.45 hours, arriving at 16.25 hours at the Kabul International airport, the airline said in a statement.

Safi Airways Marketing Manager Naeem Mahmoor said: “We will be operating our modern Airbus 319 aircraft on this route with a two-cabin configuration (business and economy).”
