‘Ridiculous’: Inside horror Jetstar flight where passengers weren’t screened before entering Sydney

Details of the last-minute scramble to screen airline passengers from Melbourne before they entered Sydney on Tuesday night have emerged, as one passenger labelled the entire process “ridiculous”.

Jetstar flight JQ520 disembarked 137 passengers about 6.40pm without waiting for NSW Health officials to conduct health screenings.

Authorities scrambled to correct the mistake, but only 89 of those could be stopped before they left the airport – with the other 48 able to roam free in Sydney.
