How the COVID-19 pandemic may disrupt your travel plans

Private Jet Charter Cabin

Obviously the situation with COVID-19 is very fluid and we urge you to check the relevant state Government information before you fly but in the meantime here is a cheat sheet for travel between states in Australia.

The good news is that outside of Victoria and remote communities in our west and north our country is opening up again.

Byron Bay is benefiting from being in a (mostly) open state.

There are no longer restrictions for travel within states so if you don’t already have your Airly private jet membership to take advantage of the opening up of Australia, you can do so now on our App.

Victoria
Victoria’s borders remain open however the greater Melbourne Area is currently a designated hotspot and is in stage 3 restrictions. You can enter Victoria however you may be subject to quarantine requirements in your state when you return.

New South Wales
NSW Borders are open to all states except Victoria and there are no restrictions for travel within NSW.

Queensland
In exciting news, Queensland will open its borders to those from all states and territories other than Victoria on July 10. Great news for people looking to make the most of the winter sun.

Unfortunately for Victorians, currently “any person who has been in a declared hotspot within the last 14 days will have to complete 14 days quarantine in government arranged accommodation.

You will need to pay for the cost of your quarantine.

All current COVID-19 hotspots are located in Victoria and currently all of Victoria is a hotspot.

South Australia
A cross border permit is required if arriving by air or road and arrivals from the ACT, NSW and Victoria must isolate for 14 days after arrival.

In good news, if you are arriving from Queensland and have spent the previous 14 days in Queensland, you are exempt from the self quarantine requirements.

ACT
The ACT borders are open to all states except Victoria.

Non ACT residents travelling to ACT from Victoria will be denied entry to the ACT unless they have an exception. ACT residents will need to quarantine for 14 days after their return.

Northern Territory
The Northern Territory’s borders are open; however non essential travellers to the Northern Territory still need to undertake mandatory self quarantine for 14 days after arrival.

There are no COVID-19 related restrictions for internal travel or travel to remote communities.

Tasmania
The Tasmanian Government has currently set a date of Friday 24 July for changes to be made to current border restrictions.

Currently everyone entering Tasmania except essential travellers must quarantine for 14 days either at their own home in a government mandated quarantine hotel.

Western Australia
WA’s hard border closure remains in place and you must apply for an exemption to enter. Further restrictions also apply for remote communities but all other internal travel restrictions have been removed.

Airly is here to get you moving around Australia whether you need a private jet charter, shared flight or want to take advantage of an empty leg.
