East Horizon Airlines targets October launch


 

New Afghan carrier East Horizon Airlines is targeting an October launch.

The 100% Afghan-owned operation aims to connect all major transit points throughout Afghanistan.

Captain Jahed Azimi, Deputy Minister of the country's Ministry of Transport & Civil Aviation, has been appointed CEO. He was formerly President of Ariana Afghan Airlines and domestic carrier Kam Air.

He said East Horizon Airlines, which was founded three years ago, is now ready to play its part in Afghanistan’s ambitious reconstruction program and will be linking the remotest corners of Afghanistan. "Through our hub in Kabul, we can then connect these destinations with regional and international airlines," he said.

The new airline is already staffed by a team of internationally-trained pilots and ground crew comprising Afghan nationals and a team of international specialists.

It is the first Afghan-owned airline to be certified under the new Afghan Civil Aviation Regulation, which was developed in 2010 by the Ministry of Transportation and Civil Aviation, in conjunction with the International Civil Aviation Organization and the Federal Aviation Administration.

East Horizon is currently awaiting the imminent arrival of three new aircraft (B737, Fairchild F27 and HS748) and aim to start operations by October, with a view to expanding in 2012.
