A week later than the past post, UL600 at an identical time from MEL but apparently at 2230 tonight ex SYD was again cancelled.

The ban on revenue passengers arriving from overseas into MEL means few international airlines are operating into the southern city. SYD and BNE don't have a 'ban' inbound, but they have very severe restrictions as to how many passengers are allowed per flight and in total per day from all operators.

The 2210 hours SYD up to CMB, UL607, has been cancelled on Sunday 11 April 2021. UL has been a fairly constant visitor to SYD and prior to the Victorian Government's travel ban on inwards international passengers, MEL in recent months, having operated more international passenger flights into and out of Oz than so-called 'flag carrier' QFi.

UL606 from CMB to SYD is arriving on Saturday 4 December 2021 with A333 4R-ALP at 0802 hours, 87 minutes late. UL607 back to Sri Lanka, the 0805 hours is predicted to depart SYD at 0915 which seems a tad optimistic.

UL605, the unattractively timed 0430 hours MEL - CMB on Monday 20 December 2021 was cancelled.

Will this become even more common with the Omicron panic?
