    NEW DELHI, MARCH 5, 2004. (RIA NOVOSTI). India is going to resume air communication with Afghanistan, head of the Indian Airlines state company Sunil Arora reported on Friday. He pointed out that the New Delhi-Kabul air route is not very interesting from the commercial point of view but the resumption of the air communication will show the important role India assigns to its friend and ally.

    Indian Airlines plans to fly to Kabul twice a week with one of the flights making an intermediate landing in the Amritsar international tourist centre ( Punjab).

    The time-limit of air communication resumption will be finally determined when the summer flights schedule is approved by the Indian civil aviation department in early April.

    India terminated flights to the neighboring country ten years ago for security reasons when the Taliban Islamic radical movement came to power.

    At the present time, the Afghan Ariana passenger air company makes flights from Kabul to New Delhi twice a week.
