Vaccine to be non-negotiable condition of flight on international services.

Qantas has revealed that a Covid-19 vaccination is mandatory for all international passengers when flights resume again.

CEO Alan Joyce said he expected the measure to become a prerequisite for future travel and predicted Qantas won’t be the only airline to do so.

“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,” he told the Australian programme A Current Affair.

“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.

“I think that’s going to be a common thing, talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe.”

Qantas is the first major airline to publicly raise the possibility of refusing travel to passengers without the vaccine.

The airline reported an annual loss of almost A$2bn ($1.46bn) due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Australian government has previously announced that international travel would only resume once a vaccine had been rolled out.

On Monday, Oxford university and AstraZeneca became the third team within a week to announce their jab had been shown to be effective in later trials.
