A private charter flight carrying passengers fleeing Afghanistan has departed Kabul en route to the U.S.

According to a statement from Project Dynamo and Human First Coalition, 127 U.S. citizens, green card holders, and nine visa recipients fled the Afghan capital following the Taliban’s rise to power.

“Project Dynamo’s goal has always been focused on bringing Americans and our allies home,” said Bryan Stern, a founder of Project Dynamo. 

"In large part our success is due to the many partnerships we have developed with organizations, governments, and donors. The teamwork has been awe inspiring. We pray that we have more opportunities in the future to continue our mission and honor the promise,” he continued. 

Alex Plitsas, a spokesperson for Human First Coalition, also discussed the evacuation of the evacuees, stating they were “proud to be a part of this effort and of the teamwork that helped to bring these Americans and allies home.”

The evacuees were tested for COVID-19, and subsequently vaccinated, as well as being vaccinated against measles.
