Aircraft Traffic

As Victoria overcomes its second wave of Covid-19, we’ll see other states reopen their domestic borders to Victoria from Monday, 23 November. This will see an increase in plane and passenger movements in and out of Melbourne Airport.

Getting planes off the ground will provide a major boost for tourism operators, allow more airport staff to return to work and help connect people with their loved ones.

We appreciate and understand there will be some excitement with the restart of aviation operations coupled with those who might feel anxious or concerned about the increase in air traffic so we wanted to make sure that we keep you across how our operations will change over coming weeks.

Melbourne Airport expects approximately:

  • 928 flights will arrive and depart at the airport, the week commencing November 23
  • 1280 flights will arrive and depart at the airport, the week commencing November 30

This is an increase of about 400-600 flights from early November. However, it is substantially down on the number of flights from an average week in November 2019, where the airport would receive approximately 4880 flights.

As the airport receives flight schedules we will continue to update the flight information on this page.

To further help communities we have provided some information below to help guide you through the increase in aircraft movements. Please also take the time to fill in the survey at the bottom of this page, to let us know what other information you would like to see here.

As always Melbourne Airport’s engagement team is here to help. If you have any questions please contact us using the details in the Get in Touch box (right).

See the "Key dates" (right) for the re-opening of borders with Victoria.
