Storm forces Darwin flight to be diverted

A Qantas flight from Sydney to Darwin was diverted to Alice Springs last night.

The general manager of Alice Springs Airport Katie Cooper says the flight was diverted because of storms over Darwin.

She says about 140 passengers had to be accommodated overnight, but they will continue their journey to the Top End today.

"I believe the scheduled route departure time for the service is at 12:35," she said.

"But I would encourage any passengers on that service to just confirm that with the airline."
