Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Australia-New Zealand Travel Bubble Kicks Off, Reuniting Families” – below is their description.
Australia and New Zealand just opened the trans-Tasman travel bubble, starting their first quarantine-free flights since the Covid-19 pandemic began.
The flights reflect “a world-leading arrangement that opens up travel while aiming to keep Covid-19 out of the community,” Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his New Zealand counterpart Jacinda Ardern said in a joint statement. Before Monday, travelers between the nations were required to quarantine for at least two weeks upon arrival, usually in hotels designated to receive overseas arrivals.
Qantas Airways Ltd. is resuming flights to all pre-pandemic destinations in New Zealand, and will also start a new route between the Gold Coast and Auckland. In total, the airline will operate around 200 flights a week between Australia and New Zealand.
While both the Australian and New Zealand leaders said they are also exploring opportunities to extend quarantine-free travel to other countries in the Pacific region, Morrison is indicating broader international travel remains off the agenda.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
