Photographer Richard Kreider captured this chartered Hi Fly Airbus A340 carrying Australians and Afghan visa holders from strife-torn Kabul as it arrived in the West Australian capital of Perth early Friday.
About 100 Australian citizens and Afghan visa holders were on board the plane.
They were loaded onto buses at Perth Airport by officials in protective gear and escorted to the Hyatt Regency Hotel, where they will spend two weeks in quarantine.
Media reports said several floors of the hotel were cleared to accommodate the arrivals, which included Australian government officials and Afghan interpreters and contractors who helped the Australian military in Afghanistan.
