Hello and welcome to Ariana Afghan Airline feature request.
About the Airline
Ariana Afghan Airlines Co , also known simply as Ariana , is the largest airline of Afghanistan and serves as the country’s national carrier. Founded in 1955, Ariana is the oldest airline of Afghanistan. The company has its main base at Kabul International Airport, from where it operates domestically, and also provides international connections that link Afghanistan with India, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates. The carrier is headquartered in Shāre Naw, Kabul and it is wholly owned by the Afghan government. Ariana Afghan Airlines has been on the list of air carriers banned in the European Union since October 2006.
The airline was set up on 27 January 1955. It was established as Aryana Airlines with the assistance of Indamer Co. Ltd. , which initially held a 49% interest, and the government of Afghanistan owned the balance. At the beginning, services were operated to Bahrain , India , Iran and Lebanon with a fleet of three Douglas DC-3s. In 1957, Pan American World Airways became the minor shareholder of the airline when it took over the 49% interest from Indamer. Domestic scheduled services started the same year. By April 1960, a fleet of three DC-3s was being used for linking Kabul with Amritsar, Delhi, Jeddah and Karachi as well as with some points within Afghanistan, while a single DC-4 operated the Kabul–Kandahar–Tehran–Damascus–Beirut–Ankara–Prague–Frankfurt service, so-called “Marco Polo” route.
As of 2019 the Airline operates 5 and flies to 11 destination. Even tho the Airline doesn’t operate the A320 anymore it would be still good to have it in IF course they only operates aircrafts that we don’t have in IF.
Why I want this Airline in IF.
- Because there is no Airline from Afghanistan.
- Why just not add every country’s airline in IF
