Major airline CEO says you’ll need Covid-19 vaccine to fly

The Qantas CEO has said that those wanting to use their airline will need to prove they’ve had the Covid-19 vaccine before boarding.

The Australian airline boss was speaking about his own airline but he expects it to become a common policy for airlines around the world.

Speaking on Australia’s Nine Network 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.

“Whether you need that domestically, we will have to see with COVID-19 and the market but certainly, for international visitors coming out [of Australia] and people leaving the country we think that’s a necessity.”

The Qantas boss added: “I think that’s going to be a common thing talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe.”

Emirates launch new multi-risk insurance

Emirates were also in action recently as they announced they’re launching new multi-risk travel insurance including Covid-19 cover at no extra cost for all passengers.

The news was announced by HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Airports and Emirates.

The cover is the first of its kind in the airline and travel insurance industries and covers all tickets purchased after December 1.

The insurance covers you for emergency medical evacuation, trip cancellation and a daily allowance of $150 per day if you test positive for Covid-19 and need to quarantine.
