Australia’s borders to reopen next month

Tuesday, 01 Oct, 2021 0

After 18 months of being virtually cut off from the rest of the world, Australians will be able to return and travel overseas ‘within weeks.’

That will likely happen next month as New South Wales nears the 80% vaccine target.

“The time has come to give Australians their life back. We’re getting ready for that, and Australia will be ready for takeoff, very soon,” PM Scott Morrison said.

Fully vaccinated Australians will be allowed home from November without going through the mandatory hotel quarantine.

Qantas will bring forward the restart of its international flights to 14 November 2021, following the announcement.

It will operate three weekly return flights between Sydney and London and three weekly return flights between Sydney and Los Angeles on Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

Once the Federal Government announces the exact date international borders will reopen in November, the start dates for these routes may need to be updated, Qantas said.

“We know Australians can’t wait to travel overseas and literally thousands are waiting to come back home, so this faster restart is fantastic news. It also means we can get more of our people back to work, sooner,” Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said.

All other international routes that  were scheduled to resume from 18 December 2021 will continue as planned, although it may add additional routes if other states and territories decide to open their borders earlier.
