No Exports Via Balkh Air Corridor in Past 6 Months

No Exports Via Balkh Air Corridor in Past 6 Months

MAZAR-I-SHARIF - Traders and their representatives in northern Baklh province say no exports departed the province through the air corridor during the past six months.
They say differences over some technical issues among Turkish Airlines, Balkh Air Service and traders have caused the exports to stop.
The Balkh governor’s house also confirmed there had not been no exports from the province through the air corridor since last six months but said technical problems in this regard had been solved.
A year back, exports from Mazar-i-Sharif Airport were officially launched to European countries and some cargo flights carrying products of the northern zone also flew from the airport to Turkey and other countries in the first three months.
Afghan carpets, dried and fresh fruits, Karakul leather were main products exported to European countries through the air corridor.
However, Balkh Chamber of Commerce now says the exports process via the air corridor from the province has stopped since last six months. (Pajhwok)
