Qantas takes off from Melbourne to Delhi

Latest News|Published 22 December 2021

The national carrier's first flight from Melbourne to Delhi departed this morning, another significant step towards Victoria reopening to the world.

QF69 was a sold-out flight, packed with passengers heading to India to reunite with their families and loved ones. 

Flights from Melbourne to Delhi are initially operating via Adelaide, while flights from Delhi to Melbourne operate nonstop. 

With almost all domestic borders reopened and connectivity increasing, passengers from other interstate cities are now able to take advantage of the Melbourne-Delhi service with one-stop connections via Adelaide. 

Since the reopening of Australia’s borders, Qantas has restarted key international routes out of Melbourne including Los Angeles, London and Singapore.  

International flights are subject to government and regulatory approval. For full details, see the latest travel requirements.
