Civil Aviation Revenue Reaches $100,000 Per Day: Officials

Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) says its revenue has increased by an average of $100,000 per day.

“As the number of flights crossing the country increased, the CAA’s average income reached 100 thousand dollars daily,” Mohammad Qasim Wafayezada, the head of CAA said.

According to officials, the cost of crossing the country’s airspace is currently $700 and is set to rise to $950 by July.

Currently, more than 400 aircraft pass through Afghanistan’s airspace every day, according to aviation officials.

The civil aviation officials added that the authority has recently created two new routes into the country, which contribute eight percent to the increase.
