An Afghan passenger plane with 43 people on board has crashed between Kunduz and Kabul, officials say. The Pamir Airways plane is thought to have gone down near the Salang Pass, a mountainous area about 60 miles (100 km) north of the capital, Kabul.
The plane had been missing since early morning. A number of foreigners were thought to be on board the flight.
Search teams, assisted by US and Nato forces, were reported to be on their way to the crash site.
Aircraft had been sent to search for the plane, a spokesman for Nato told the Reuters news agency.
"I can confirm that an aircraft carrying 38 passengers plus five crew has crashed somewhere in Salang Pass," Interior Ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary said.
The Salang Pass is a major route through the Hindu Kush mountains connecting the capital, Kabul, to the north of the country.
Pamir Airways is one of Afghanistan's private carriers and operates mainly domestic routes across the country.

What about Aryana airways?

You do know Safi just got a nice deal for a bunch of planes right?

I don't know about Safi Ariline but Aryana was good. I liked it, lots of Food, clean, good service, Islamic prayer and very fresh environment.
