    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Outbound travel ban is gone for AUS PRs and citizens only. No caps into NSW. Parents of AUS PRs and citizens will be considered 'immediate family'

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    I suspect the border will open to AUS citizens and PRs only (as outlined in the National Plan), not 'international tourists'

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    very limited options as well for inbound flights in Jan into SYD only option really is QF (which would involve another carrier - like AF - from ports like CDG into SIN) agree that prices will drop with a lot more options from Europe into AUS once CX/SQ/EK/QR/EY release inventory

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Speaking in Boston where airline chiefs have gathered for the International Air Transport Association annual general meeting, Qantas boss Alan Joyce provided more details of how overseas travel will look when flights resume next month. Mr Joyce said they were continuing to work with IATA on the...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    NZ is mandating vaccination for all incoming travellers, so clearly something that can be done. I am not sure we are talking about a very large number of unvaccinated 'stranded Aussies'. Those can always be catered by repatriation flights into DRW. The airlines would be much better off...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    QF has a lead-up as they are running flights for vaccinated travellers only. Things are more complex if you don't have such a mandate, as those airlines will be selling uncapped tickets for vaccinated travellers and capped tickets for unvaccinated travellers, with uncertainties around how that...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    The foreign airlines are definitively lobbying the government and trying to get fewer restrictions. I am not convinced by their argument as you would assume that there would not be too many unvaccinated Australian travellers willing to come back and do hotel quarantine. They would be better...

    International airlines operating to Australia say they need more information before they can sell seats on flights ahead of November’s reopening of national borders.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    At this stage, only QF is selling inbound tickets from now until Feb. We are yet to see the likes of EK/QR/SQ releasing inventory for that period. I suspect this is due to the uncertainties around how it will work for unvaccinated travellers (daily cap? cap per flight?) and the added complexity...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    so to recap, no set date on which the travel ban will be removed, just 'November'? for anyone, trying to book a YE/Xmas trip to Europe, plenty of options for outbound in Nov/Dec. Limited options at this stage for outbound in Jan besides QF. Hopefully the likes of EK/QR/SQ will start selling...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Services Australia has revealed that technology to allow Australians to travel overseas with proof of vaccination will be ready within weeks. The so-called visible digital seal (VDS) project will allow Australians to verify their vaccination status with Home Affairs, who will create a “highly...

    This will probably mean home quarantine at great scale in NSW as soon as late Oct

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    not opening the gates but something at a bigger scale QF is certainly talking to the Gov. and part of the planning, but the likes of SQ / EK / QR are definitively not. No comms either on lifting up the pax caps.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    I don't think it is being negative, but recognising that very little forward planning is being done. Why does a test need to be run while SA has already done one and as the risks are very limited with close to 10,000 community cases a week in NSW? Why is no detailed planning being done with...
