A flight organized by Qatar rescued 45 Germans and their relatives from Kabul. According to the federal government, further evacuation flights are being planned.
A second passenger flight operated by Qatar Airways also brought 45 German citizens with their families from the Afghan capital Kabul on Friday. This was announced by the Foreign Office in Berlin. A spokesman said that there was intensive work on further exit options. Affected people would be contacted. With the first civil evacuation flight, 15 Germans were flown from Afghanistan to the Arab emirate of Qatar on Thursday.
Since the end of the military evacuation mission in Kabul with the withdrawal of the last US soldiers, western countries have been trying to allow their nationals and former Afghan local staff to leave the country. Land routes and flights from neighboring countries are to be used increasingly for this purpose.
