As Australia’s vaccine rollout hits rates faster than the US or UK ever achieved, Qantas looks at December as being the start of international flights to high vaccinated countries.-
Although initially only for countries such as Japan, UK, Singapore, US and Canada, the resumption will greatly expand over the months.
- Non-stop flights to the UK are expected to be in higher demand. Qantas will look to moving their stopover from Perth, Western Australia to Darwin, Australia due to hard interstate border closures
- A330’s are being modified to be able to fly from Brisbane to the west coast of the US
- High-risk countries will resume in April due to their current high infection and low vaccination numbers
- Qantas will take delivery of three new 787’s and retire two A380’s as the fleet returns to full capacity over months or years.
