Amid the Covid-19 outbreak in India, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday announced that all flights from India to Australia will be temporarily halted till mid-May.

The decision comes after the last week’s decision by National Cabinet to reduce all flights from India by 30 percent.

The suspension also includes all repatriation flights scheduled from India to Australia. It must be noted that Australia had 8 repatriation flights planned from India to repatriate around 9,000 Australians in India wanting to return home.
