SkyLink, East Horizon Forge Afghanistan Aviation Logistics Alliance

SkyLink Aviation and Afghanistan-based East Horizon Airlines have formed a joint venture to provide aviation and logistics services across that country.

East Horizon is the youngest airline in Afghanistan and SkyLink has worked with NATO on rotary-wing missions for the past five years there, the companies said Tuesday.

“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,” said David Dacquino, president and CEO of SkyLink Aviation.

Jahed Azimi, CEO of East Horizon, said the airline aims to reach new destinations in Afghanistan through the partnership.

According to East Horizon, it is the only airline that flies between remote provinces and the capital of Kabul.
