An Australian evacuation flight retrieving people from Afghanistan arrived in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday, according to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
Flight tracking websites showed a Royal Australian Air Force C130 land in Dubai.
There were 26 people onboard the flight including Australian citizens, Afghan nationals with visas, and one foreign official working in an international agency, Morrison added.
"I can confirm that security situation at the airport has improved and more broadly across Kabul and that is supported particularly by the presence of US and UK troops on the ground being able to take control of the airport. It still, though, remains an incredibly challenging environment in which to operate," the Prime Minister said.
This is the first of an undisclosed number of Australian evacuation flights.
On Monday, the Australian Defence Force (ADF) said it will be deploying more than 250 personnel "to support urgent Australian Government efforts to evacuate Australian citizens and visa holders from Afghanistan."
"Defence is taking all necessary precautions to protect its people and those authorised for evacuation. The mission will be constantly assessed against the latest developments," the ADF said.
