Afghanistan’s Ariana Airlines Denies Reports One Of Its Planes Crashed

The Daily Mirror is reporting that a state-owned Ariana Afghan Airlines plane crashed Monday in Afghanistan’s central province of Ghazni. 

Arif Noori, the spokesman for the governor of Ghazni Province, told Reuters that “a Boeing plane belonging to the Ariana Afghan Airline, has crashed in the Sado Khel area of Deh Yak district of Ghazni province around 1:10 p.m. local time.”

Local media said 83 people were on board, but at this moment, there’s no official report on the fate of the crew and passengers.

There are conflicting reports at the moment, CBS’ Ahmad Mukhtar tweets that Ariana Airlines rejects the reports of a crash and insists all flights are operating normally. 

Ariana Airlines told AP News that none of its planes have crashed in Afghanistan. 

Ariana Afghan Airlines’ acting CEO Mirwais Mirzakwal told Reuters, “there has been an airline crash but it does not belong to Ariana because the two flights managed by Ariana today from Herat to Kabul and Herat to Delhi are safe,” Mirzakwal told Reuters.
