The source notes that departures and arrivals of flights at the Kabul airport will be carried out from 6.00 to 18.00 local time.
Earlier it was reported about the implementation of several flights between Afghanistan and a number of countries, including Qatar, Pakistan and Iran.

In early August, the Taliban stepped up their offensive against Afghan government forces, entered Kabul on August 15, and announced the next day that the war was over. The last two weeks of August from the airport of Kabul, which was under the protection of the US military, there was a mass evacuation of Western citizens and Afghans who collaborated with them. On the night of August 31, the US military left the Kabul airport, ending the nearly 20-year US military presence in Afghanistan.

On September 6, the Taliban announced that Panjshir, the last of the 34 Afghan provinces, had come under their control with fighting. The next day, the composition of the interim government of Afghanistan was announced, headed by Mohammad Hasan Akhund, who served as foreign minister during the first rule of the Taliban* and has been under UN sanctions since 2001.
