Passengers will need vaccine proof for global flights, warns Qantas boss

COVID-19 Vaccine Update: Moderna to Charge Between $25 And $37 Per Dose of Its Vaccine, Says CEO

"We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say for global travellers, we will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft", he said.

The prospects of mandatory vaccination on domestic flights would depend on "what happens with COVID-19 in the market, but certainly for global visitors coming out, 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".

Joyce says Qantas is looking into how people can be given a "vaccination passport".

There's a glimmer of hope that Australians may be able to travel overseas next year.

"There's a lot of logistics, a lot of technology that needs to be put in place to make this happen".

Evidence has shown that human's immune system could maintain its protection mechanism against a second infection of the COVID-19 virus for as long as eight months, easing previous concern that people could lose the immunity in just a few months, Australian researchers said yesterday.

Mr Joyce hinted similar policies could be brought in in Australia to allow worldwide travel to open up safely, including mandatory DNA tests - known as PCR tests.

Moderna will charge governments between US$25 and US$37 (S$34 and S$50) per dose of its Covid-19 vaccine candidate, depending on the amount ordered, chief executive Stephane Bancel told German weekly Welt am Sonntag (WamS).

Worldwide travel has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, with flights cut and airlines laying off staff.

Australia closed its borders on March 20, meaning only Australian citizens and permanent residents can fly back to the country.

However, domestic flights have now resumed between Melbourne and Sydney as travel between New South Wales and Victoria has opened up again.
