KABUL (SW) – The National Aviation Authority figures suggest at least nine per cent decline in revenue collection in the past year.

The NAA head Mohammad Qasim Wafaeyzada told a press conference here on Saturday that the finance ministry had set up the annual revenue collection target of AFN 5.9 billion. He said this body, however, managed to collect up to AFN 5.1 billion.

He said that the drop in revenue collection was mainly due to cut in flights.

Separately, Sayed Umer Saboor, director Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul rejected claims by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar in regard to unmarked planes landing and taking off without any security check. Discarding this allegation, the HKIA chief said no security institution is allowed to interfere with the aviation matters at the airport.

Based on the aviation authority figures, over 53,000 domestic and international flights were managed at the HKIA in Kabul last year.
