India repatriation flight tp return to Australia half empty

Nearly half of the 150 people booked to return to Australia from India on the first repatriation flight since last month’s flight ban was introduced will now no longer be able to board the plane.

As a part of the agreement to undo ban on flights from India, due to lift at midnight on Friday night, passengers must complete two COVID-19 tests in the two days prior to boarding – one PCR test and one rapid antigen test.

Anyone who presents a positive COVID-19 result will be refused entry into Australia, as too will their close contacts, should any also booked on the flight.

According to a report by the ABC, over 40 people booked on tonight’s flight out of India returned a positive COVID result. Including their close contacts, now over 70 people originally scheduled to fly back to Australia will no longer be permitted to board.
