Turkish Airlines restores flights to Afghanistan | Airlines

Turkish Airlines is continuing its pursuit of holding the crown of “flying to more countries than any other airline” by resuming flights between Istanbul and Kabul, Afghanistan. Flights on the route were halted in August 2021 following the Taliban’s takeover of that country’s capital city as Western troops and other organizations left the country.

The first flight of the newly restored route departed Istanbul Airport (IST) at 00:53 local time on May 21, 2024, and landed at Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport (KBL) at 06:45 the following morning. The inaugural service was operated by one of the carrier’s 13-strong fleet of Airbus A330-200s registered TC-JNA. The route took the aircraft over the Black Sea, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, and into Afghan airspace before descending into Kabul.

The revitalized route is due to operate four times per week, departing Istanbul on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

The outbound flight (TK706) leaves Istanbul at 00:40 arriving in Kabul at 06:45 (four hours 35 minutes). The return flight (TK707) departs Kabul at 08:45 arriving back in Istanbul at 12:45 the same day (five hours 35 minutes). The route is a total great circle length of 2,251 miles (3,603km).
