Vaccinations will be required for all international passengers
The CEO of Australian airline Qantas has confirmed in an interview that anti-vaxxers will not be allowed on the airline’s international flights going forward.
November has seen a spate of encouraging reports regarding the roll-out of a vaccine for coronavirus, with Oxford University on Monday confirming that its vaccine, manufactured with AstraZeneca, has an efficacy rate of up to 90 percent.
It’s hoped that initial roll-outs of such vaccines will be underway beyond the New Year and Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas, has stated that it’s likely that the company will require proof of vaccination for passengers looking to board international flights.
Speaking on Australian show A Current Affair on Monday, Joyce said: “We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say that, for international travellers, we will ask people to have a vaccination before they get on the aircraft.
