Covid: Australia, Qantas Introduce Shielded Incentives – Last Hour

(ANSA) – ROME, May 28 – The national airline, Qantas, is the first Australian company to offer incentives to those vaccinated against Covid-19 to help speed up the campaign in the hope it will lead to the reopening of international borders.

Details of the incentives are finalized but are expected to take the form of airline vouchers, frequent flyer points, or frequent flyer credit. The initiative will be in effect until the end of the year, and those who have been fully vaccinated are entitled to it.

“As a large company that relies on travel to bring planes and personnel back to the runway, we are clearly excited to contribute to the national vaccination effort,” said Steve Tolly, head of the Qantas customer office, noting that there are many good reasons to get vaccinated and that the company is happy to add one. .

The director general, Alan Joyce, announced a few days ago that the line’s international flights, which could resume from December 17, would require vaccination as a condition of travel, with the exception of flights with New Zealand. (handle).
