Players, Practice, Passengers | Australian Open Fly-In | Doha & Dubai to Melbourne

Event is sponsored by @QantasVirtualGroup.

If any of you are tennis fans then you may be aware that the qualifiers for the 2021 Australian Open are currently being played in Doha and Dubai, before the lucky group of qualifiers fly down to Melbourne and head for Melbourne Park, the home of the Australian Open. The qualifiers are usually played at Melbourne park itself, but due to COVID, they have decided for the first time in the history of the Australian Open, to play the qualifiers overseas.

This event has partnered with @QantasVirtualGroup to operate these special charter flights down to Melbourne and get the players there in time for the very exciting and first round of the Australian Open.
