Coronavirus repatriation flight from India lands at Darwin Airport

A special repatriation flight carrying 183 Australians who had been stranded in India has landed in Darwin, where they will begin a two week quarantine process in the Northern Territory.

The flight, QF112, is the second of eight special Qantas flights, chartered to repatriate Australians from South Africa, Europe and India.

The plane was scheduled to land at 8:20am AEST but touched down on Australian soil at 9:51am — its passenger list including 62 children, 18 of whom were under 2.

All 183 passengers will be transferred directly from a RAAF part of the airport to the Howard Springs quarantine facility, where they will undergo 14 days of mandatory quarantine.

On Friday, a repatriation flight with 161 Australians, including 22 children, touched down in Darwin from the United Kingdom.

These passengers are already in quarantine in Howard Springs, and to date none of the 161 travellers have tested positive to COVID-19.
