No Europe trips until the end of 2021: Extraordinary claims made by Qantas CEO as he says flights won’t restart until there is a vaccine

Qantas boss Alan Joyce believes international flights won’t resume until a coronavirus vaccine is available.

While flights to Europe may remain off the cards until the end of 2021,  he hopes travel bubbles with closer destinations will be developed.

‘With New Zealand it’s a one-way travel bubble. Hopefully we can get that in both directions. That’s a massive market,’ he told The Today show.

‘Kiwis were the second highest tourism market into Australia before COVID. We’re hoping they there may be bubbles to Korea, Taiwan, Singapore eventually under the right circumstances. We haven’t flown to Korea and Taiwan in decades but we’d put services back into those destination it is we could.

More to come.
