F I N A L L Y! I wonder why it took so long for them to announce KBL. I am also eager to see if they add more secondary cities in other parts of the Mid East. The E-Jets give them an unique aircraft to handle these. One thing surprising has been the lack of expansion to CIS.

GF in particular? or would this enthusiasm apply to any Gulf flag carrier if they were starting KBL, I would have expected Saudia to be the first, ofcourse originally it was meant to be Qatar Airways in 2004.

Non governmental organizations = NGO
Though there is a decent shia minority in Afghanistan, it is not as in Bahrain where much of the government is Sunni and the people are mostly Shia. I would say though its not about picking up ethnic/religious sect traffic, more so actually connecting traffic internationally....
Safi once had the non stop to FRA, but connects people through DXB today. With FlyDubai helping to put more bums onto Emirates flights, I would say GF just wants a bit of the action!
