AWCC launches 3G services in Kunar’s Narai district



(Last Updated On: September 14, 2022)

Residents in Narai district of Kunar province have finally gotten 3G internet services – thanks to Afghan Wireless Communication Company (AWCC).

AWCC officials said 20,000 families in the district will now benefit from the newly rolled-out 3G service.

They said that 4G services will also be launched in the district in the near future.

“There will also be 4G services in Narai, Machmanai, Barikot and Shangar,” said Ataullah Sahil, head of AWCC in eastern zone.

“Narai people can access 3G services after 20 years and AWCC has become the first company to provide the service.”

Residents in Narai district welcomed the launch of 3G services in the district.

“There were no such services here. We used to go to Asadabad or Nangarhar to call our relatives,” said Mohammad Yosuf, a resident of Narai district.

Another resident who welcomed the move said however that “the rates are high.” He appealed for a reduction in costs.

“We are very happy about AWCC providing internet services here,” said Zikrullah, a resident of Narai district.

Meanwhile, Sifatullah Sajad, provincial director of communications in Kunar, said that they were working to help reduce prices and increase the quality of services.

AWCC started operations in Afghanistan in 2002. It has quickly expanded communication and internet services across the country.

In its ongoing quest to provide world-class mobile communication services to Afghanistan, AWCC has continued to expand services across the country.

Recently, a new customer care center was opened in Kandahar. According to Noor Ahmad Shah Sadat, the provincial director of AWCC: “We have always made efforts to provide services, especially to people who are in remote areas, and who have been deprived of telecommunication services for years.”

Founded by Dr Ehsanollah Bayat, AWCC provides voice and data services to over 5 million consumers and businesses.

Over the past 20 years, AWCC has driven the rapid growth of Afghanistan’s communications market and today, the company delivers rapid, reliable and robust HD Voice, 2G, High-Speed 3G and 4G/LTE Data, Internet and My Money ™ Mobile Payment Services to its clients in all of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces.

Turkish Airlines to resume Afghanistan flights



(Last Updated On: October 2, 2022)

Turkish Airlines will resume flights to Kabul and Mazar-i-Sharif in Afghanistan in March next year, it was reported this week.

Turkish Airlines operated from Istanbul to Kabul for more than a decade. Since the political change in Afghanistan in August last year, Turkish Airlines like many other foreign airlines have conducted no flights to Afghanistan.

But Turkish Airlines will return soon. Its first bookable flight to Kabul is on March 27th. However, its first bookable service from Kabul is on the 26th, aviation industry publication Simple Flying reported.

Like Kabul, Mazar-i-Sharif is returning. Both outbound and inbound flights will be on March 29th.

Afghanistan Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation also said the country’s airports are ready for flights, and the services at the airports are according to international standards.

Imamuddin Ahmadi, a spokesman for the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation, said that Fly Dubai is also expected to resume flights to Afghanistan.

Economic experts say international flights will help trade to grow and increase revenues.

IEA announced earlier this month that they signed a contract with Abu Dhabi-based firm GAAC Solutions to provide flight services and manage planes landing and taking off at key airports in Afghanistan.

The flight guidance services deal will also include equipping the facilities and training of Afghan staff at the country’s three major airports, including Kabul.

The two other airports covered under the deal are in Herat and Kandahar.

IEA urges the world to lift sanctions on new govt of Afghanistan



(Last Updated On: October 2, 2022)

The Islamic Emirate once again urges the international community to lift sanctions on the new government of Afghanistan and also to remove the travel restrictions of the IEA officials.

According to IEA officials, the continuation of these sanctions on the new government of Afghanistan will increase the distance between the Islamic Emirate and the international community.

“The continuation of global pressure and sanctions on the new government of Afghanistan will increase the distance between the Islamic Emirate and the international community,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the IEA.

It has been more than a month since the travel exemption of 13 senior officials of the Islamic Emirate has ended and these officials cannot travel outside of Afghanistan.

The international community has always made the issue of imposing sanctions on the Islamic Emirate conditional on the establishment of a comprehensive government, the provision of human rights, especially the rights of women and girls, and the removal of terrorist threats from Afghanistan, emphasizing that it would not recognize the new government of Afghanistan until these conditions are fulfilled.

However, the Islamic Emirate has repeatedly emphasized that it has completed all the conditions of a legitimate government.

Although the UN Security Council held a meeting twice regarding the extension or rejection of travel exemptions for officials of the Islamic Emirate, but due to differences of opinion among the members of this council, both meetings ended without results.
