Last week, Qantas revealed its new plan to restart international flights to 7 countries from 18 December 2021. That’s just over three months away. But how realistic is this plan? And could we see international travel open up for people in NSW, ACT and Victoria before other states agree to do the same?

In the meantime, the international arrival caps into Australia have just been reduced yet again, meaning only 2,300 passengers per week are now allowed to arrive into Australia on commercial flights over the coming months. So, what does this mean for Australians trying to come home now?

In Episode 68 of the AFF on AIR podcast, Matt interviews travel agent and regular podcast guest Alan Lam from Netwave Travel about the outlook for international travel to and from Australia over the coming months and beyond.
