Prime Minister announces when repatriation flights from India will resume
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed the India travel ban will end and repatriation flights will resume on May 15.
Three flights will be scheduled this month, and will fly into the Howard Springs quarantine facility in Darwin.
The imposition of penalties under the Biosecurity Act “will remain unchanged” until May 15, the Prime Minister said.
It comes just a day after Mr Morrison told Neil Mitchell he was “not going to commit” to a date for the return of repatriation flights.
Returning Australians will be required to undergo rapid antigen testing before they fly.
“We’re going to have to deal with this flight by flight,” Mr Morrison said.
