Virgin Australia A330-200 VH-XFA diverts to Adelaide

Virgin Australia A330-200 VH-XFA operating 'VA564' en-route Perth-Sydney diverted to Adelaide this evening, arriving at 21.20hrs. The aircraft overnighted in Adelaide and departed to Sydney at 10.45hrs as 'VA9501'.

The reason for the diversion was due to bad weather in Sydney would enable the aircraft to be put in a holding pattern, due to Sydney having a curfew beginning at 23.00hrs, the aircraft felt it would not make it in by the curfew.
