How long is the flight to Kabul?
Flights from Canada to Kabul, Afghanistan range from about 24-40h. If you’re traveling out of Vancouver International, or other airports in the western provinces, you can expect your flight time to be on the longer end of this range. Conversely, if your departing city is Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau, your flight time will likely be closer to 24 hours. Other factors that will contribute to your flight time will be the number of stopovers, the length of each stopover, and the time of year.
Where can you get direct flights to Kabul from?
There are no direct flights from Canada to Kabul, unfortunately. You should consider a couple of things when trying to book as-short-a-flight-as-possible when travelling to Kabul. Firstly, the airlines that regularly fly into Kabul. Some of these include Emirates, PIA, and Turkish Airlines. Next, consider flying out of your nearest major international airport. If that happens to be Toronto Pearson International, you will be more likely to be able to find a flight that links up with one of these airlines easier than starting your journey out of London, Ontario, and only make about two stopovers. Common layover cities when flying to Kabul include New York, London, Munich, and Beijing.
How do you get from Kabul airport to the city centre?
Kabul is home to one major airport, Hamid Karzai International Airport (KBL), which is about 16km from the city centre. It is highly recommended to take a taxi from the airport to the city centre, as any other form of transportation can be dangerous for foreigners. Arranging for a ride with one of Kabul’s reputed private taxi companies will cost about C$33 one way and take only about 20 minutes to reach your destination.
What are some things to do in Kabul?
While most only travel to Kabul for business purposes, you may have an opportunity to explore this historic and conflicted city, just be sure to always travel in numbers in Kabul, as foreigners can be a target for terrorist groups.
Babur’s Gardens have been a lush green oasis in the city since the 16th century. This park consists of flower beds, stone walls, waterways, and Babur’s tomb. Explore Kabul Museum to gain insight into the city’s rich history as a crossroads in Asia. At Ka Faroshi Bird Market, you can stroll an ancient and narrow walkway lined with cages of birds and bird sellers. On Fridays, the alley is packed with gamblers and those who wish to witness weekly bouts between flighting partridges. For a different type of Friday match-up, visit Ghazi Stadium for weekly soccer games and seasonal buzkashi matches, all between humans, of course.
Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Kabul?
Yes, Canadian travellers with a valid Canadian passport also need a visa to visit Kabul, Afghanistan. Be sure to apply for your visa well before your departure date to ensure smooth travels.
