QANTAS: Brings forward international flights!
Doesn’t take much for Alan Joyce to see an economic opportunity
Qantas just announced that it is bringing forward the restart of its international flights by 2 weeks. That means that flights restart on 1 November 2021 with NSW and the Federal governments announcing borders will re-open then too – for the fully vaxxed, without quarantine.

Qantas is planning on up to 5 return flights a week between Sydney and London (via Darwin), and 4 between Sydney and LA on its Dreamliners
Initially, flights will be limited to Australian citizens and permanent residents and their families and parents in keeping with Australian Government orders
Flights to Singapore, Fiji and Vancouver were scheduled to start on 18 December 2021 but now Qantas is looking at bringing forward some of those and maybe other destinations from Sydney if possible.
Book now, or change the date
These earlier flights are on sale now, and if you have booked a later flight – you can transfer to an earlier date – fee-free.
“We have thousands of our pilots and cabin crew wanting to get back to work and they will be thrilled at today’s announcement. It will still be a long time before international travel returns to normal but this is a fantastic start.”Alan Joyce, Qantas Group CEO
Just remember that these flights are only for the fully vaxxed!
- All over 12’s must be fully vaccinated.
- Require a negative COVID test from an approved PCR testing site 72 hours prior to departure.
- NSW Government may require additional testing of passengers on arrival
Will I be flying? Not until my Uni essays are finished, and that isn’t until well into November unfortunately.
Oh, and I’m not quite sure these availabilities have quite yet loaded to booking systems around the world.
