Hajj flight operation to continue for a week

Hajj flight operation to continue for a week

Sep 26, 2013 - 17:53

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): So far 16,000 pilgrims have been flown to Saudi Arabia and the flight operation would take another week to complete, the Ministry of Hajjinfo-icon and Religious Affairs (MHRA) said on Thursday.

This year, a total of 25,000 Afghans would be flown to Saudi Arabia for performance of the hajj ritual, officials say, claiming requisite facilities had been put in place for them.

Deputy Hajj and Auqaf Minister Dayee-ul Haq Abid told Pajhwok Afghan News that the process of airlifting pilgrims would continue until October 3.

He added the pre-hajj operation had been hitch-free so far and pilgrims, who had reached Saudi Arabia, were satisfied with the services made available to them.
