Using technology to relieve human suffering

Afghan Government Ministry

PACTEC exists to support NGOs and humanitarian agencies working in Afghanistan. Government of Afghanistan Ministries are permitted to travel where their mission is to assist in humanitarian and reconstruction programs. Guns, concealed or otherwise, or military personnel are not allowed on humanitarian assistance flights. We serve the entire community on the principal of “first come, first served” in a transparent manner.

Afghanistan Government Approval Procedure

To become an Approved (or “registered”) Government Agency for the purposes of flying with PACTEC, your organization needs to satisfy the following requirements:

  1. Be an Afghan governmental organization.  Proof must be provided by bringing (in person) to our booking office an official request letter on government letterhead.   The letter must have an official registration number.  The agent bringing the letter must have an ID Card from the agency requesting our flight services.
  2. Receive approval from the PACTEC Country Director or his designated representative.
  3. Bring an additional request letter on government letterhead for each additional flight.

Passengers not from Authorized Agencies

Passengers who are not employed by an approved agency, but travel on behalf of an approved agency may travel with PACTEC if the approved agency sponsors them.  Sponsored passengers require a letter of introduction for each flight request, describing the work they are doing for the sponsoring agency.  The head of the authorized agency should sign the letter.  The sponsored passengers MUST be booked by the sponsoring agency and cannot book themselves.

PACTEC is a non-profit humanitarian relief organization and therefore services are NOT available for commercial use or to commercial users.

Journalists

Journalists may fly with PACTEC if their work is sponsored by an authorized agency per the terms above.  Journalists can only be booked by their sponsoring agency.

  • In critical medical situations, NGOs can book passengers from their clinics supported by a doctor’s letter. The pilot reserves the right to require a doctor on the flight if the patient is unstable.
  • For medical emergency evacuations please Contact Us or feel free to contact your medical insurance company such as RMSI.
