Pilgrims trip to Hajj brings in USD 2.5mn to Aryana Airlines

National carrier of Afghanistan, Ariana Airlines, generated USD 2.5mn worth of revenue during this year’s Pilgirms’ trip to Hajj.

Minister of Hajj and Religious Affairs, Faiz Mohmmad Osmani, said the Ministry has donated 23mn AFN to Afghan children suffering from a “hole in the heart”.

The Ministry had announced in July that Hajj expenses had reduced by USD 10mn. The cost of round-trip ticket to Saudi Arabia was reduced from USD 2,700 to USD 2,450 this year.

Accommodation had been arranged for 24,000 Afghans in Saudi Arabia where they were also provided with Afghan meals three times a day.

Minister Osmani promised that efforts are ongoing to solve the problem of absence of a guide for the pilgrims on the flights and transportation problems in Mecca and Medina.
