Officials said the aircraft wouldn’t fly in and out of Kabul but ferry evacuees in and out of bases in Germany, Qatar and Bahrain.

  • The Pentagon requested aircraft from six airlines for a period of approximately one to two weeks, defense officials said. American Airlines Group Inc., Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings Inc., Delta Air Lines Inc. and Omni Air International LLC are providing three aircraft each, while two planes will come from Hawaiian Airlines and another four from United Airlines Holdings Inc.
  • The move is the latest effort by the Biden administration as it scrambles to transport tens of thousands of Afghans and other civilians out of Kabul after the U.S.-backed government collapsed a week ago, leading to a takeover by the insurgent Taliban movement and a rush of civilians seeking to flee the country.
