As we head into the weekend of this latest lockdown, as usual we're making the health of our passengers and staff our priority.
From 11:59pm Thursday 27 May until 11:59pm Thursday 3 June Victoria will go into a state-wide circuit-breaker lockdown.
We welcome the Premier's announcement today that Avalon Airport is under consideration to house an isolated purpose-built quarantine facility.
First of all I want to thank our staff and their families. In an incredibly trying year, the staff at Avalon Airport has shown resilience, loyalty and optimism at every step. They have embraced new roles, changed roles and changed circumstances with positivity and understanding. They are the backbone of the operations here, and this year in particular each has brought so much to the table to help get us through this extraordinary time.
In January, hot off the back of incredibly successful AirAsia flights to KL and our domestic Jetstar flights, we began this year celebrating the announcement that Garuda subsidiary Citilink would be flying daily between Avalon Airport and Bali.
• Jetstar’s first flight from Avalon in nine months took off today.
• Avalon-Adelaide flights set to resume on 1 February 2021 with four weekly return services.
• Jetstar to return to its full Avalon schedule from February.
Friday 18 December | The first flight in almost nine months landed at Avalon Airport today, as the airport and Jetstar worked closely with DHHS in response to the latest NSW COVID-19 cluster.
Avalon Airport has partnered with The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Foundation to celebrate 150 years of the RCH, one of the world’s leading paediatric hospitals. The partnership encourages Victorians to recognise the extraordinary impact that great care has had on children for one and half centuries.
Today Jetstar announced that from 2 January 2021 they will resume their hugely popular flights between Avalon and the Gold Coast.
Domestic travellers can move swiftly and safely in and out of Avalon Airport with minimal contact with other passengers, thanks to new security upgrades and the installation of state-of-the-art touchless technology.
