About Kam Air
Kam Air was Afghanistan’s first private commercial airline and is owned by its founder, Mr. Zamaray Kamgar, the renowned Afghan businessman.
It’s Air’s Operator Certificate (AOC No. 001) was granted in August 2003 and was the first to be issued by the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation of Afghanistan (MoTCA). Kam Air was subsequently allocated International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Code KMF, International Air Transport Association (IATA) Code RQ and Financial Code 384.
Since its foundation, the airline has enjoyed impressive growth. It has an annual turnover of US$ 200 million and carries more than a million passengers each year. Kam Air has played a major role in the development of Kabul as an important transport hub in the region, supporting Afghanistan’s commercial, industrial and tourism sectors.
The airline offers direct international services from Kabul to: Kuwait; Ankara; Dushanbe; Islamabad; Istanbul; Jeddah; Mashhad; New Delhi; Sharjah; Tashkent; and Tehran. It also connects Kabul to 12 domestic destinations: Khost, Bamyan; Bost; Chaghcharan; Faizabad; Farah; Herat; Kandahar; Maimana; Mazar-e-Sharif; Tirinkot and Zaranj.
Kam Air also offers direct international flights from Herat, Kandahar and Mazar-e-Sharif to: Jeddah; Mashhad; New Delhi; and Tehran, as well as smooth connections to other international destinations through its hub at Kabul.
This network further benefits from a code share agreement with Air Arabia and Kam Air has interline arrangements with APG Airlines, Hahn Air and Saudi Arabian Airlines. All of its services are available through global distribution systems such as: Apollo; Galileo; Sabre; Sirena; and Worldspan.
Thanks to consistently great teamwork across aircraft dispatch, flight operations, and ground operations, an average of 95% of Kam Air services depart on time, but the airline continues in its efforts to achieve the highest levels of sustained on-time performance.
Kam Air is privileged to serve a wide range of corporate clients, including international NGOs such as: Danish Refugee Council; Norwegian Refugee Council; Save the Children; and the Swedish Committee.
As well as its scheduled commercial services, Kam Air also provides cargo and passenger charter flights to the Afghan Presidency, ANSF, the German Embassy, Tetra-Tech GSSP, the US Army and the US Embassy, as well as to private companies and NGOs in both Afghanistan, and internationally.
Kam Air has offices throughout its network.
The Kam Air fleet of 13 aircraft comprises: Four Airbus A340s; two ATR72s; Six Boeing B737s; and one Boeing B767.
As a responsible business, Kam Air complies fully with the recommended practices and regulations mandated by ICAO and certified by MoTCA, especially where they relate to safety and quality standards. The airline was also recertified by the Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority in October 2017 and its quality management system has been certified as compliant with ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and ISO 9001:2015.
Kam Air proudly supports the development of Afghan professionals and 90% its work force of more than 800 employees are Afghan nationals. It remains committed to improving its talent base through a comprehensive programme of training and development.
Kam Air is the largest tax payer in Afghanistan, contributes significantly to the GDP of the country, and received the award for best tax payer from the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Economy in 2017.
But Kam Air’s philosophy has been one of continuous improvement and the airline has ambitious plans for the future.
Central to its growth strategy, Kam Air intends to expand its international network and is evaluating potential new routes to: Azerbaijan (Baku); China (Hangzhou and Urumqi); Germany (Frankfurt); Iraq (Baghdad and Najaf); the United Kingdom (London); and the United States.
To sustain this expansion, Kam Air is in discussions to acquire additional aircraft to increase and modernize its aircraft fleet, ensuring that its services are: affordable; efficient; environmentally sustainable; and safe.
A cross-functional team is preparing the airline for its IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) in the first quarter of 2019. IOSA is an internationally recognized and accepted evaluation system designed to assess an airline’s operational management and control procedures, standards and systems and is a pre-requisite for Kam Air’s membership of IATA, the prestigious trade association of the world’s international airlines.
A visible symbol of Kam Air’s progress across all these areas will be its rebranding, through which the airline will embark upon the next 10 years of its journey, whilst retaining its reputation for stability and success in connecting Afghanistan to the world.
