Another coronavirus repatriation flight will touch down in the Nation’s Capital on Monday night.

Up to 180 returning Australians and permanent residents will fly in from Singapore.

The Singapore Airlines flight is expected to arrive at Canberra Airport at 7:45pm.

After disembarking, passengers will be processed by ACT Health officials and taken to the Pacific Suites hotel in Braddon where they will undergo their mandatory 14 days of hotel quarantine.

Health authorities insist the Territory’s quarantine program is up to the job of preventing the spread of the virus within the local community.

“ACT Health officials will conduct health screening on arrival and will conduct mandatory COVID-19 testing for all passengers on day one and again on day 13.”

“ACT Health has a robust quarantine program with measures in place to protect quarantine staff, contain and deal with any potential positive case, and to support the wellbeing of people while in quarantine.”
