Far more than a hundred Australian and New Zealand crew and travellers of an Antarctica cruice ship anchored off the coast of Uruguay will fly into Australia about Easter.
The flight, scheduled to arrive at Melbourne in Sunday, has been chartered by Aurora Expiditions – the operator of the Greg Mortimer ship – and will fly from Montevideo.
The Office of Overseas Affairs and Trade instructed AAP on Friday of the much more than two hundred folks on the vessel, 96 were being Australian and 16 were being New Zealanders.
Five Australians have been taken off the Greg Mortimer and hospitalised in Montevideo, DFAT confirmed.
The flight comes as Australia’s COVID-19 dying toll reaches 54 following an additional man or woman succumbed to the disorder in NSW on Friday.
