Kam Air, one of the biggest commercial airlines of Afghanistan, have sent their aircraft to Iran in order to keep them safe as the situation in the Taliban-controlled country seems to be filled with political turmoil, according to US media reports.
The news was confirmed by a spokesperson for the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization, who did not specify the number of aircraft that have been sent over by the Afghan commercial airline.
Mohammad Hassan Zibakhsh, the spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Organization, said in a statement, "Following the escalation of clashes and tensions at Kabul airport, the owner of the private Afghan airline Kam Air requested the transfer of a number of the company's airplanes to Iranian airports", according to reports from Forbes.
The Iranian Civil Aviation Organization's spokesperson said that the aircrafts arrived in the country without any passengers aboard.
He added that Iran has issued the company a landing permit for the aircrafts, which was done after duly considering international cooperation standards.
Kam Air primarily operates out of Hamid Karzai International Airport, which located in Afghanistan's national capital Kabul. The company, which was initiated in 2004 by businessman Zamaray Kamgar, carries more than a million passengers annually, according to reports from Forbes citing the Kam Air's website.
The news comes around reports coming from Kabul's international airport about two reported bomb blast which has killed multiple people, including members of the United States armed forces.
Latest reports from BBC citing Afghan officials suggest that at least 60 people have been killed in the twin bomb blast outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport on Thursday.
Governments of the United States, Australia and United Kingdom had issued warnings days before the incident and asked their citizens to steer clear of the area.
The Kabul airport has been at the centre of the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan since the Taliban took over. Thousands of people, including Afghans, have been trying to flee the country. The Taliban, on the other hand, have warned the US against encouraging Afghans to leave the country.
