The plane will carry Australians keen to get home during the Coronavirus pandemic and taking off four and a half hours later returning home with Israelis with the same idea.

Israel’s ambassador to Australia Mark Sofer told J-Wire: “The flight from Perth to Tel Aviv is completely full.

The president of the Zionist Federation of Australia Jeremy Leibler said: “There are over 100 participants in the ZFA Masa progran in Israel at the moment and we are trying to get them home on this flight.

However, it is unclear what will happen to them when they arrive in Perth as WA has imposed quarantine conditions on anyone arriving from overseas.”

He added: “We have also recommended that any participants who wish to leave do so now as it may become more difficult in the future.”
