East Horizon launches first direct flight between Faryab and Herat

Afghan domestic airline, East Horizon, launched the first ever direct flights between Faryab and Herat.

The airline’s other flights include Kabul to Ghor, Bamiyan , Kunduz and Uruzgan.

Plans are underway to introduce flights to Faizabad, Ghazni, Daikundi and Farah provinces, depending on security, the airline said.

East Horizons chief executive Jahed Azimi said the airline’s initial investment is more than USD 20mn with two airplanes and two more planes will be purchased in the future.

The 100% Afghan-owned operation aims to connect all major transit points throughout Afghanistan.

The new airline is staffed by a team of internationally-trained pilots and ground crew comprising Afghan nationals and a team of international specialists.

It is the first Afghan-owned airline to be certified under the new Afghan Civil Aviation Regulation, which was developed in 2010 by the Ministry of Transportation and Civil Aviation, in conjunction with the International Civil Aviation Organization and the Federal Aviation Administration.
