More Australians coming home from overseas will fly into Adelaide in the coming week as part of repatriation efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.

Police Commissioner Grant Stevens says about 800 people will arrive by June 28 with one flight coming from South America, potentially two from India, and a defence force contingent flying in from Indonesia.

“There will be a strict regime in place to ensure that they are properly processed at the airport, loaded onto buses, conveyed to a supervised quarantine location where they’ll undergo health checks,” Mr Stevens said on Tuesday.

All involved will be required to remain in isolation for 14 days.

In May, about 680 people flew into Adelaide on two separate flights from India.

They were isolated in two hotels in the city, with none testing positive for COVID-19.
