Voice of Travelers to Kabul

Airfare ticket to Kabul

I flew to Kabul for humanitary project. I bought my ticket through a local ticket agent in Ankara. My ticket to Kabul was issued with Turkish Airlines yet the airline flying the link between Ankara and Kabul was the Kam Air, Afghan airlines. I was surprised by the cleanliness of the airplane and the service on board on Kam Air. Staying in Kabul for almost a month was a rewarding experience and if I go there again, I will purchase my ticket directly with Kam Air. The ticket was reimbursable in case of changes or cancelling my trip to Kabul, so there is no risk when purchasing this airfare ticket.

Visiting Kabul on a return ticket from Tehran

My company has business partners in Kabul, so I have already visited Kabul and our office just outside of Kabul many times. The last time I flew to Kabul with an airfare ticket issued for the first class from Tehran to Kabul directly with Iran Aseman Airlines. The service aboard Iran Aeman was great. This ticket for the first class was a reward by my boss for my work and liason with Kabul. My ticket back from Kabul to Iran was for the first class as well. We also have a lot of discounts on tickets to Kabul as we are regular customers at our ticket agent already, so I believe our ticket agent gives us discounts when we buy a ticket for the first class.
