Afghan government takes full control of air traffic operations from NATO

Afghan government has taken full control of the air traffic operations from the NATO, according to the officials of the Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (ACAA).

Mahmood Shah Habibi, the deputy director general of ACCA, on Tuesday said the government will now control the air traffic operations with the help of foreign experts.

It is seen as a significant move towards taking full control of Afghanistan’s airspace which has hitherto been under the control of NATO.

“Right now, we have 100 percent control of the air traffic and the NATO requires permission from the government of Afghanistan if they want to operate it,” said Mr. Habibi.

ACAA, an independent authority managing civil aviation in Afghanistan,  was established on the basis of Civil Aviation Law (CAL), which was endorsed by the Afghan parliament in October 2012 and approved in December 2012.
