The federal government has been supplementing Qantas flights to bring home stranded Australians around the world since October 2020.

The move followed the introduction of arrival caps and came after the previous repatriation scheme in April 2020.

Qantas has been utilising its 787 Dreamliners, which have a capacity to carry around 170 passengers.

    Is there any way to find out the upcoming repatriation flight schedule?

      Good question! The answer is no, which is why I ran this story. From what I gather, you get an email if you have registered your interest to return home from the local High Commission / embassy etc.

      Thanks,

      Adam
