Question about tomorrow


Melbourne* (YMML), Adelaide (YPAD), Hobart (YMHB), Gold Coast (YBCG), Cairns (YBCS), Sunshine Coast (YBSU), Newcastle (YWLM)

Featured Airline: Virgin Australia & Jetstar

This is on the ATC schedule as most of you already know. How can I find out what time each airport will have ATC coverage so I can plan my flights in advance?

It switches at 0600z

Hello there,

Region will change at 0600z and it will be alive for 24 hours until 0600z on Thursday.

The region changes at 0600Z, as previously stated.

It is never certain when an airport will be open because IFATC does not give a specific schedule. However, the Hub Airport(s), (Airport with a *) will usually be staffed by at least Ground and Tower at all times.

Hope that helps


To be clear, if I wanted to fly from somewhere to YMML overnight, there is a fairly high chance of ATC coverage at my arrival?

Oh thanks that’s very helpful

If there is an event, the first airport listed or an airport with a star (*) will most likely have ATC. During some events, if the first airport isn’t full, the others can’t be staffed, but this will be highlighted if this is the case.
