SpiceJet to recommence Delhi-Kabul flights from tomorrow

Mumbai, Aug 1: Low-cost carrier SpiceJet today said that it would resume its Delhi-Kabul flights from tomorrow as per its old schedule. As a precautionary measure, the Chennai-based airline had suspended services to Kabul on July 18 after some security-related incidents.

SpiceJet had been flying thrice a week to the capital of war-ravaged Afghanistan on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The national carrier Air India had also suspended its operations to Kabul last month. Following increased security threats, especially after a Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down killing all the 298 passengers on board in the middle of last month, and increased militant activity in Afghanistan, many international airlines had also suspended the air operations to the war ravaged country last month.
