QF on track for Dec


QANTAS continues to make plans for a pre-Christmas return to internatio­nal flying, with mainstream media in a frenzy over hopes the Biosecurit­y Emergency Declaratio­n will not be re-imposed when it expires on 17 Dec, allowing Australian­s to leave the country without having to request permission.

A QF spokespers­on told TD there was no further official confirmati­on beyond what had been revealed by CEO Alan Joyce last month (TD 26 Aug), with the carrier scheduling 18 Dec departures to London, Vancouver, Los Angeles and Singapore from both Sydney and Melbourne, adding Tokyo and Fiji on 19 Dec.

QF said it will operate if the ban is lifted and if pax are double vaccinated; however the carrier has also previously revealed it will not fly if capacity is restricted, which may be the case if quarantine requiremen­ts are not also relaxed.
