Kabul International Airport

Kabul International Airport

janitor
Kabul Airport was built in the 1970s. Due to international sanctions under the Taliban, the airport was all but closed, with few international flights. Following the United States attack on Afghanistan after the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York, the airport reopened. At first, it was only for the US military and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), a NATO-led peacekeeping force. After the removal of UN sanctions, in early 2002, it was finally allowed to be used for civilian airlines. The US military and ISAF (with the Romanian Air Force a lead contributor) run the airport and provide security with the Afghan authorities.
