So your employees "accommodations" need to be protected by an armed compound? Unless this is a Marriot with armed guards, it sounds like prison.... And 21 consecutive days? yeah no thanks.

According to the website, its a start up airline. I quote from flyaji.com

"Afghan Jet International Airlines will be operating with two 50-seater Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft and plans to induct Bombardier Q400s with 74 seats that will connect Kabul even to airports having non-paved runways.

The future acquisition of AJI includes the acquisition of navigation single isle twin jets such as the B737 NGs of the equivalent A320 airplanes.

With an increment in fleet, operations will be expanded to other regional destinations in South Asia, central Asia and Europe."

Agreed. It would take no less than $400,000/yr for me to do that, with a first class ticket anywhere I want on those 10 days. Maybe.

There are like three paved runways in that entire country. It's also the poorest country on the planet. Even the best paid make $200/month (excluding the few corrupt). Who exactly are you thinking you're going to fly, and to where?

You would probably be kidnapped within a month and held for ransom.

Have you ever been to the Middle East? Have you ever been off 'the Island of America'? Do you even own a passport?

Accommodations in a secured, armed compound would be a prerequisite for any job in Afghanistan. And most other places at that latitude west of Bangladesh. 21 days on is not a deal breaker. Most Asian commuting contracts are longer. 10 days off could be. How much paid leave is there in addition to the 10 unpaid days a month? Are tickets provided for days off? Business or better? Worldwide?

What is the pay? "commensurate with qualifications" is fine for an East Asian contract. For West Asia it had better be ridiculous. That $400,000 figure is damn close. Flying the Hajj, based in JED, they were paying $15k/$9k a month. And the risk factor/comfort level ratio in Jeddah is considerably better than in Kabul.

I'm guessing you haven't been there...OAKB, OAKN, OAHR, OAJL, OAMS, OAUZ, OABT, OAZI just to name a few. There is scheduled airline service all over the country using 1900's and 737's. As for the armed compound in Kabul, all the westerners live behind armed walls. 21 days on and 10 days off with the opportunity to see the World sounds a whole lot better that a Stateside regional.
