Domestic flight services will resume

Qantas and Virgin Australia will reintroduce flights on a limited domestic schedule. Flight services will resume from today, 17 April, and will operate with social distancing on board.

This announcement comes after the Australian Government has committed to subsidising key domestic routes for at least eight weeks. The Federal Government, in collaboration with the airlines, will review the schedule on 7 June, 2020.

The aim is to keep important freight corridors open during the COVID-19 pandemic and enable essential travellers to continue flying. The flights will also support passengers who need to return home.

Melbourne-Adelaide – three return services per week
