Afghan passengers complain about extra security checks at Kabul Airport

Kabul International AiportAir India and Pakistan International Airline reportedly take extra security precautions for Afghan passengers at Kabul International Airport.

Afghan Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Dr. Daud Ali Najafi said the two airlines conduct their own body searches of passengers during boarding process of their flights leaving the Kabul Airport.

Najafi added that the extra security checks were only done for Afghan passengers.

“We have received complaints and we told Air India and PIA that after this they must not repeat the checks and trouble passengers,” Tolo News quotes Najafi. “When the passengers go through our check it is enough and when a plane lands from Delhi or Islamabad in Kabul we also rely on your country checking.”

The two airlines have argued that their contract allowed them to run extra security checks if need be, to which Najafi said the contracts should be reviewed and renegotiated.

Meanwhile, a number of parliamentarians want the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to get involved and some proposed mimicking the procedures taken by the two airlines and doing redundant searches of all Indian and Pakistani passengers.
