The night rush at Melbourne Airport contains some of the best movements we have. YMML is a curfew free airport, meaning that there’s no restrictions at night as to when aircraft can operate in and out and a lot of airlines use that to their advantage. The rush is in full swing from 6pm all the way through to 12am and contains some exclusive aircraft that cannot be seen during the day. After dark is also the prime time for freight operations and can attract up to 3 747 freighters throughout the night.
This compilation focuses on the late night departures that Melbourne sees on a regular basis. During this busy time, there are many flights to Asia and the Middle East as its one of the best times for European connections from where the carriers originate.
Without further ado, I hope you enjoy these night flights at Melbourne Airport!
