Qantas will be flying abroad again from December

According to the plan, 80 percent of the approximately 25 million inhabitants of Australia should be fully vaccinated by December, Qantas announced on Thursday. The airline will then initially fly to countries with high vaccination rates.

Flights to places with low vaccination rates and high numbers of infections, on the other hand, should not be resumed until April 2022. “The prospect of overseas flights may seem a long way off right now, especially with the states of New South Wales and Victoria in lockdown. But the current pace of the vaccination campaign suggests that we should have a lot more freedom in a few months, ”said Qantas boss Alan Joyce.
