The youngest Afghan airline has partnered with one of the world’s leading providers of aviation and logistics services to supply badly-needed aviation solutions within Afghanistan.

SkyLink’s president and chief executive officer David Dacquino said: “Our partnership will combine SkyLink’s 10 years of experience operating in Afghanistan, primarily with rotary wing aircraft, with East Horizon’s fixed wing scheduled services within Afghanistan.” SkyLink has been in the aviation business since 1989 and has operated in more than 75 countries and has served a diverse customer base to include governments, NGOs and commercial clients. For the past five years to present, SkyLink has been Nato’s first choice for rotary aviation support within Afghanistan.

East Horizon is the first airline established in compliance with the new rules and regulations of the Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority. Through its unique network, it is the only airline that connects the remote provinces to the capital. East Horizon serves the government, business and local communities, and plans to expand its current network reach.

This partnership will bring western standards to eastern knowhow, creating a winning combination.
