Qantas CEO states Covid-19 vaccines will be mandatory

Qantas CEO ‘Alan Joyce’ stated that it will be mandatory for passengers to be vaccinated before travelling onboard an aircraft. Mr Joyce stated, “We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say for international travellers that we will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft”.

Mr Joyce added that other airliners are to implement similar rules as he stated, “I think that’s going to be a common thing talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe.”

Travel between New South Wales and Victoria has reopened but travel to places such as Europe and the United States has yet to resume as Mr Joyce stated, “Unfortunately with the levels of the virus in the United States and in Europe, we’re not going to see operations to those destinations in any real strength until we see a vaccine being rolled out, which is likely towards the end of 2021”.
