Afghanistan's Kam Air makes first flight to Tashkent


TASHKENT -- Kam Air, one of Afghanistan's airlines, has made its first flight from Kabul to Tashkent Wednesday (November 29) morning, according to National Air Company Uzbekistan Airways, reported 1news.uz.

The Kam Air Boeing 737 brought an Afghan government delegation from the Afghan capital to Tashkent. The flight was made just days before an official visit by Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to Uzbekistan scheduled for early December.

An agreement opening air service between Uzbekistan and Afghanistan was signed between the aviation authorities of the two countries earlier this year.

Kabul-Tashkent flights are scheduled to begin in December, running twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Afghan specialists will also train at the flight school of Uzbekistan Airways and the Uzbekistan Airways Technics airline.
