Qatar Airlines conducted ninth evacuation flight-one of the biggest- from Kabul to the Qatari capital Doha on Sunday, October 17, Qatari official told CNN.

The passengers included an unknown number of Americans, faculty staff and students of Afghanistan’s American University, citizens of Afghanistan, Australia, the Netherland, and Denmark.

The passengers will be sent to the facility where evacuees are currently settled and will be tested for COVID019 before leaving for their respective destinations.

The flight with 353 people was the biggest since Qatar Airlines started the evacuation process on August 31.

Last week, its eighth evacuation flight was the biggest with over two hundred people in which male and female Afghan footballers were flown to Doha.

Qatar has acknowledged that they will continue to work with international partners so that they ensure freedom of movement in Afghanistan.
