COVID-19: Queensland border open to NSW from 1 November
That’s right, Queensland is seeing sense, economic necessity or electoral advantage in announcing that its borders will fully open to the people of NSW from Sunday 1 November 2020.

The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel. And that is going to require the development of an alternative to jet engines probably.
It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.
