Australia's prime minister says Australian and New Zealand officials evacuated more than 650 people from Kabul Airport over Monday night.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that Tuesday five flights had left the airport in the busiest day of Australian involvement in evacuations since the Taliban took control of the country.

Morrison told Nine Network television that the evacuated people included Australians, New Zealanders and Afghans.
