“We have got all technical clearances for flight operations,” PIA spokesman Abdullah Hafeez Khan informed AFP.
“Our first commercial plane… is scheduled to fly from Islamabad to Kabul on September 13.”
Mr. Khan mentioned the service would rely upon demand.
“We have received 73 requests which is very encouraging… from humanitarian relief agencies and journalists,” he mentioned.
In the final two days Qatar Airways has operated two constitution flights out of Kabul, carrying principally foreigners and Afghans who missed being taken out throughout the evacuation.
An Afghan airline resumed home flights final week.
