A QantasLink flight from Sydney is scheduled to land in Bendigo at 11.35am Monday, while 44 Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar flights from Sydney will touch down at Tullamarine airport on Monday, despite Premier Daniel Andrews announcing new restrictions on people arriving to Victoria from Greater Sydney.
A Qantas and Jetstar spokesperson said the airlines haven't changed their planned operations following Sunday's announcements and are seeing a high level of inquiry from customers in Sydney looking to change their travel plans.
"We have seen some customers cancel their travel plans between NSW and Victoria and others booking flights before the hard border closure begins," the spokesperson said.
"We'd ask anyone not travelling in the next 48 hours to please avoid calling our contact centre to help us manage our high call volumes."
Victoria will close its border to Greater Sydney and Central Coast from 11.59pm on Sunday as a NSW virus cluster increased to 70 cases.
Premier Daniel Andrews said with a growing number of exposure sites in NSW, there was every chance people who had COVID-19 may not have been tested, contacted or staying away from others.
"Do not travel to Greater Sydney," Mr Andrews said.
Border communities in Victoria and NSW will still be able to travel across the border freely by showing their driver's licence to police, with a heightened police presence along the border.
Mr Andrews said 700 members of Victoria Police would be patrolling border checkpoints, enforcing the government's permit system.
New quarantine requirements for Victorian and non-Victorian residents were announced on Sunday.
Victorians who are in Greater Sydney will be permitted to undertake 14 days quarantine at home if they return to Victoria by 11.59pm on Monday.
If they return after this time, a mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine period will be undertaken.
Non-Victorian residents who arrive after 11.59pm on Sunday will be taken to mandatory hotel quarantine.
Mr Andrews said a permit would be required for anyone who wishes to travel to Victoria by road.
"If you are from Greater Sydney, you will not get a permit," he said.
"From midnight Sunday, all of Greater Sydney and the central coast is a red zone and you cannot come to Victoria."
Victoria's Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said there was "every reason to think there might be cases now emerging outside of the Northern Beaches area".
"For the returning residents we are really wrapping the quarantine system around them to make sure that if they do become cases we will know about them, they will have very limited opportunity to transmit to anyone else in Victoria," he said.
"We do have to hang onto this precious COVID-free situation in Victoria."
