Azerbaijan Airllines stopped serving the Afghan capital, they were operating twice weekly Tu154 nonstop form Baku, This leaves Kabul with only PIA and Indian as the only scheduled foreign operaters, others that served the city in the not so distant past were Air Arabia, Tajik Air, Mahan Air, Iran Air/Iran Air Tours, Iran Aseman and for a very short while LTU.

The operational difficulties of serving a destination such as Kabul are preventing more carriers from serving the city. I don't know many airline employees would volunteer to be stationed in Kabul.

I am reminded of a story I heard many years ago of a Chinese airline that had personnel stationed in Pyongyang, and how this crew resorted to growing vegetables in the bathtub for extra food.

What KBL needs is the formation of an Afghan company to supply the personnel, equipment, and all other necessities for a foreign airline to serve the airport. This would employ local people (who are familiar with the customs and eccentricities of many of the passengers) as well as allow foreign airlines to feel comfortable in sending their planes into KBL.

Some kind of charter operated by a travel agency, used A332 nonstop from Dusseldorf once a week lasted only a few flights.
