521st AMOW partnerships allow transient movement
Evacuees prepare to leave Ramstein and head to other transient locations during Operation Allies Refuge at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, Aug. 30, 2021. In order to process passengers seeking transport to their next destination, 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing Airmen have repurposed their maintenance hangar into a small international airport to build a cohesive system in coordination with the Department of State, Transportation Security Administration and other agencies. Partitions are used to separate different outgoing flights during processing. Operation Allies Refuge is facilitating the quick, safe evacuation of U.S. citizens, Special Immigrant Visa applicants, and other at-risk Afghans from Afghanistan. Evacuees receive support such as temporary lodging, food and water, and access to medical care at Ramstein Air Base while preparing for transportation to their final destinations.
