Hello everyone! I’m pleased to announce that this event is now officially featured as a community event. This means that the event will be advertised on Infinite Flight’s social media and discord platforms.

If you haven’t already done so, make sure to let us know if you can make this event by reacting either “going”, “interested” or “not going” in the original post so we can try and get some accurate numbers.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there and helping to get the tennis players, coaches, tennis fans and tournament staff from all over the world to Melbourne on time for the Australia Open… the first tennis Grand Slam of the year!


Great event @Declan!

I will for sure be attending this! :)


Looking forward to seeing you there!


May I just ask, what is the Departure airport if we are flying into Melbourne?

Can it be any?


It’s any airport. The event is a 24 hour event where users are recommended to operate a flight into Melbourne in order to assist in getting players, coaches, fans etc. to Melbourne in time for the Australian Open!


Ah okay! Thank you so much :)

It’s 24 hours long, you can fly-in whenever you like that day

It sure does. Afterall, there is a lot of freight needing transported as well for the Australian Open! 😉

The event is a 24 hour fly-in event. Therefore you’re more than welcome to fly in at any point.

Ufff thanks for clearing that out! Changed status to interested now, see you then

Excited for this event! I’ll be flying in from Auckland aboard the 777, which I assume will be a pretty popular route 😅

So are there no gate reservations?

Wait nvm I’m stupid
