Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ariana Afghan Airlines Co. Ltd. is the oldest and the national airline of Afghanistan, and is currently the largest Afghan airline, headquartered in Kabul. The airline operates domestic and international passenger services. Ariana Afghan Airlines was established on 27 January 1955. During the 1970s, Ariana was considered a good standing, reliable airline. At that time, Ariana was owned 49% by Pan American World Airways and 51% by the Afghan government, and the airline operated aircraft such as the Douglas DC-10s, Boeing 727s, and Boeing 707s (as well as its 720 vaiant), exclusively offering international flights. Domestic flights were then operated by Bakhtar Alwatana. In 1988, Bakhtar merged into Ariana, thus creating an airline which could serve both short and long haul routes.It is wholly owned by the Afghan government, with its main base in Kabul International Airport.show more
