I can confirm that the Aussie flights have been happening for a little while now and allow only 32 passengers to fly back to Australia due to having a limit on the number of returnees to Australia from all over the world.

 

Regular basis, that is following a schedule. They had repatriation flights, yes, but not regular.

It's every Sunday though. That's a schedule is it not? I mean it's only for aussies, so I assume that it'll remain that way since the govt aren't letting any locals out of the country and aren't accepting any new tourists either. So it's just a repatriation flight both ways essentially.

I can also confirmed that the flights for the 8th and 15th of November are booked out.

I suspect there have been many Thai (and other airlines) repatriation flights to and from Bkk for many months but never mentioned in the media.

Actually they are and have in fact relaxed the criteria recently such as just stating you will be leaving for at least 3 months (prior you had to have a pressing reason).

 

Still need to be able to get into your chosen destination country of choice obviously.

What about flights to and from Perth, the safest city in Australia and probably the world. 

I guess the flights will be destined to fly where the need for repatriation has the highest need.

Maybe Perth isn't on the radar yet?
