Spiegel: ‘There aren’t any mines there anymore’

September 23, 2011

Welcome to heroin hell! The in-flight magazine of Afghan airline Safi Airways does not mince words. In an interview with SPIEGEL ONLINE, editor Christian Marks talks about dog fighting, war zones and why passengers want the truth.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Drug addicts, dog fighting and sightseeing trips to war-torn ruins — reading the in-flight magazine onboard a Safi Airways flight to Kabul might make you want to immediately turn back for home. Has your employer ever complained?

Marks: No, he’s completely satisfied. People who fly with Safi Airways to Afghanistan aren’t your typical tourists; mostly they work here. They’re diplomats, aid workers or the employees of security companies. You don’t have to pretend to them.

    contradictory situations are a carateristic either of Kabul than other countties.
    This signify not this counties must not be visited or are not interessant.
    Now Kabul is a county where war, corruption, illecit traffic may be present, and have lost, partially, his touristic potential, but it is ever Kabul.
    I think that there no motifs that exclude the possibility to visit Kabul, using cautions for the actual situation.
