"Flights aren't technically being "diverted" away from Victoria.I saw Andrews in his press conference Tuesday say he was going to request Scomo for flights into MEL to be diverted elsewhere for a while. Didn't hear more.
MEL doesn't look shut to inbound international to me. FR24 lists UL, GA and CX flights arrived this morning, and QR expected this evening.
Many airlines have simply cancelled their flights to Melbourne or changed them to cargo-only services until July 14."
International passengers who were due to fly into Melbourne soon are scrambling to make other plans after Victoria announced it would not accept any people who would need to enter hotel quarantine for the next two weeks.
