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.”
