The Australian government has been hustling to provide charter flights into Majuro (and other island nations) via Solomon Airlines.

This flight arrived late last week, the second flight into Majuro since borders reopened September 8. The flight connected Majuro to Tarawa and Brisbane.

Under Australia’s Pacific Flights Program, this Solomon Airlines flight flew over 50 people across the Pacific, said the Australian Embassy in Majuro.

“Welcome home to those reuniting with family, friends and loved ones,” the embassy said in a social media post. “We look forward to this key air link to Brisbane being re-established soon.”
