ghazni airport jpg[1]Saudi Arabia has passed new regulations that disallow aircrafts over 25 years old from flying to any location in the country.

This could pose a problem to Afghan carriers that transport thousands of Afghans for pilgrimage to Mecca annually.

Most Afghan airlines use older models, with many of them being over 25 years old.

The Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (ACCA) said they would attempt to negotiate with the Saudi Arabian government in order to exclude Afghan airlines from the new standards.
