Germany Grounds Military Flights in Afghanistan After Azerbaijan Closes Airspace to NATO Planes
Germany has grounded military flights to a training camp in Afghanistan until the end of April after Azerbaijan closed airspace to NATO planes, Spiegel said Sunday.
Germany’s Bundeswehr has been flying its A310 transport planes weekly to the northern city of Mazar to rotate personnel, the Spiegel news magazine said.
But a routine flight in late March had to be cancelled after Azerbaijan refused to give NATO a transit permit. Germany will rely on US C-17s to carry troops to the Afghan camp using a different route.
