SpiceJet suspends flights to Kabul after spate of attacks at Kabul Airport

spicejetIndian airline SpiceJet has temporarily suspended its flights to Kabul following the recent attacks at Kabul airport.

The suspension of the flights will take place with effect from Friday and SpiceJet has offered refunds to passengers.

“In view of the security situation in Kabul and its airport, SpiceJet has decided to temporarily suspend our Kabul flights until the situation improves… we have decided to take this step as the safety of our passengers and crew is of paramount importance to us. We will offer passengers a full refund and will also try to request other airlines that operate to Kabul to accommodate them if they still desire to travel,” a SpiceJet statement said.

The Kabul airport witnessed a rocket attack on July 3 and then the airport was again in the line of fire on Thursday.

Kabul has been at odds with the Indian government over “ladder point” security checks on passengers boarding planes at Kabul even after clearing checks at the terminal building. The situation has become a diplomatic issue between India and Afghanistan.
