Direct flights from New Zealand to Melbourne to resume on Monday


Direct international flights from New Zealand into Melbourne will be allowed to resume from Monday.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Friday that he had written to Prime Minister Scott Morrison that morning confirming the flights could resume on November 9.

“That is direct flights into Tullamarine from New Zealand so that New Zealanders will be able to travel direct to Melbourne and throughout Victoria,” Mr Andrews said.

“While we found ourselves inadvertently in the New Zealand bubble, I’m not sure if bubbles have doors but the front door will now be (open).”

The Premier said the next logical step after Monday would be to reboot hotel quarantine for returned overseas travellers, but he would wait until after the Board of Inquiry’s interim report was handed down on Friday to make any announcements.

Victoria recorded its seventh straight day of zero new coronavirus cases and no deaths on Friday.

Mr Andrews said it would be up to individual airlines as to when the first flight would land in Melbourne, but they would be allowed to do so from Monday.

More to come.
