Is Afghanistan Airspace Still Open To Intl Flights

Thu Sep 20, 2001 10:11 am

What's the current status on Afghanistan airspace? Many flights overfly it on Europe-SE Asia routes -- or at least they normally do.

I know even before 11 September, the Taliban threatened to close off their airspace to international flights unless sanctions were dropped allowing Ariana to fly internationally.

No. They closed it on Monday. It was reported only 12 routes cross Afghanistan
