Pakistan Airlines Suspends Flights to Afghanistan

Pakistan Airlines (PIA)  has suspended its flights from Kabul due to the alleged horrible working conditions imposed by the Taliban.

“We are suspending our flight operations to Kabul from today because of the heavy-handedness of the authorities. (After the Taliban started) changing regulations and flight permissions at the last moments or deciding at a whim rather than meeting international regulations” said the PIA. 

The PIA also said that their country representative was held at gunpoint and was accused of aiding refugees while staff members have also reported being physically and verbally abused. 

PIA spokesman Abdullah Khan said that they would only resume flights “if the situation on the ground improves and [becomes] more conducive for international operations.”
