Under permission from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the airlines will operate return flights from Islamabad to Kabul.
Ariana Afghan Airlines (AAA) can fly twice a week. Meanwhile, Kam Air (KA) can operate five flights.
The CAA allowed 1,000 passengers to come and go from Afghanistan in a week.
Earlier, PIA CEO Arshad Malik said that
The national carrier is only running chartered flights to the Afghan capital.
He further said
The cost of war insurance is one of the obstacles to resuming scheduled flights to the Afghan capital.
Narrow-body planes can only land at Islamabad International Airport.
Afghanistan initially sought travel permission from Karachi, Kabul, Mazar Sharif, and Kandahar.
But this permission is subject to the signing of an MoU between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
After this permission, more than 1,500 passengers will benefit from the MoU.
