5. State Dept. will not charge for evacuation flights from Afghanistan

snip...

People evacuated from Afghanistan by the U.S. will not be charged the cost of their flight, State Department spokesman Ned Price told The Hill.

"In these unique circumstances, we have no intention of seeking any reimbursement from those fleeing Afghanistan," he said.

The statement provides a point of clarification over federal law that mandates the State Department seek reimbursement for U.S.-chartered evacuation flights.


The law requires that Americans or other foreign nationals agree to pay back the cost of an evacuation, which is typically comparable to the cost of a full fare economy flight, or comparable transportation to the designated destination.
