KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Local officials on Wednesday said the civil airport of northeastern Kunduz province has got a standard terminal worth $1.4 million.

Governor Asadullah Omarkhel, during his visit to the airport, said the terminal construction process had begun four years ago.

The facility with capacity for 1,300 passengers had been constructed based on standard engineering and cost $1.4 million, paid by the Ministry of Transport, he said.

“We seriously need a standard airport. Fortunately, the airport’s new terminal would be inaugurated in the near future; work on the expansion of the airport is also underway,” the governor added.

Anwar Sadat, chief of Kunduz airport, called the development good news for Kunduz residents and said the terminal would provide more facilities for passengers.

On the other hand, provincial council head Amruddin Wali, happy with the project implementation, asked the government to pay attention to the airport’s expansion. Construction of the terminal was an essential need of Kunduz residents, he said.
