Afghan skies lucrative for UAE carriers

Kabul International AirportThe UAE-Afghanistan route is proving to be a lucrative and vital business for UAE carriers.

Currently, Dubai-based carrier Flydubai flies between Dubai and Kabul three times a day, and Air Arabia flies six times a week from its hub in Sharjah to Kabul.

The two carriers are eyeing for further opportunities to expand their services in Afghanistan, as the route is proving to be high-yielding.

Demand for air links between Afghanistan and UAE is high, given the high concentration of Afghanistan business communities who are operating from UAE, mainly Dubai.

Emirates commences a daily passenger service to Kabul from 4th of December this year.

The route will be operated by an Airbus A340-500 configured in a three cabin configuration, offering 12 First Class, 42 Business Class and 204 Economy Class seats.

Emirates has identified a demand for a premium service airline offering between Dubai and Kabul. The first Emirates flight is already 88% full.
