What happened last week?
Last week was all about 'living with COVID' as Scovid (our Prime Minister) and Gladys (our Premier) put it.
Looks like we are moving towards quarantine at home, with a trial in SA just completed, and one starting in NSW this week. That will be a relief for returning Aussies this Christmas, and may allow an increase in arrival capacity which will please the airlines.
In other news: Virgin Australia extended Velocity membership through to 2023, NZ travel bubble suspension was extended, and Qantas lost its bid to team up with Japan Airlines on routes between Australia and Japan. Arrival cards are to be ditched, and we looked at who might be flying out of Australia and to where, once international borders reopen.
