AFTA backs plan


THE Australia Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) has echoed comments made by PM Scott Morrison yesterday, who urged state premiers to transition from hotel quarantine to home isolation once the vaccinatio­n rate reaches 80%.

“Home quarantine would mean an immediate boost to the number of Australian­s able to start internatio­nal leisure and business travel because the restrictio­n of available hotel quarantine places no longer applies,” AFTA Chair Tom Manwaring said.

“At the core of this though needs to be a commitment from all state leaders that they will stick to National Cabinet’s agreed reopening plan beginning from the 80% vaccinatio­n threshold via Safe Travel Zones.”
