Qantas to fly only vaccinated passengers

Qantas is looking to resume its international flights by the end of the year, and CEO Alan Joyce confirms a “no jab, no fly” policy will be the way to go.

Australia’s largest airline will be one of the first carriers in the world to require all its passengers on international flights to be fully inoculated against the COVID-19 when it hopefully resumes its global operations in December.

As reported on, Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce confirmed that “Qantas will have a policy that internationally we’ll only be carrying vaccinated passengers.” He further added, “we think that’s going to be one of the requirements to show that you’re flying safe and getting into those countries. So we’re hoping that can happen by Christmas.”

For its part, the airline will require all frontline staff (pilots and cabin crew) to be vaccinated by Nov. 15, with all other employees inoculated by the end of March 2022, as reported by Furthermore, the carrier will also encourage passengers to get vaccinated by giving away frequent-flyer points or the chance to win free air travel.
