Default Australian Open 2021 charters

QR8836 is a cargo only flight, that isnít operating today.

Melbourne has a couple of charters today. One from Doha (QR7176), one from LAX (QR7493). There will be many more charter into Melbourne in the coming days. Saturday morning there is 3 due in a 5hr block

Adelaide is also getting 2 Aussie open charters. One from Doha, one from LAX.

Coronavirus cases after Australian Open chartered flight into Melbourne force players into strict quarantine

Two people onboard a specially chartered flight into Melbourne for the Australian Open have tested positive for coronavirus, meaning players travelling with them will be confined to their rooms and unable to train for 14 days.


An aircrew member and an Australian Open participant who is not a player arrived on the flight from Los Angeles on Friday morning, COVID-19 Quarantine Victoria (CQV) said.

The passenger returned a negative result after a pre-departure test.

The two have been transferred to a "health hotel" after returning positive tests for COVID-19.

"All remaining 66 passengers on the flight have been determined to be close contacts. Any players and support people will not be able to leave quarantine to attend training," a CQV spokesperson said.

Under quarantine conditions ahead of the grand slam next month, COVID-negative players are allowed out of their hotel room for up to five hours each day to train.

The Australian Open confirmed 24 of the passengers were players.
