In an interview with Australia's A Current Affair, the CEO of Qantas airlines said his company is looking at changing its rules to require that people flying internationally must be vaccinated against COVID-19. "We think that's a necessity," he stressed.
During the Nov. 23 interview, host Tracy Grimshaw asked CEO Alan Joyce, “When there is a vaccine, are you going to require all of your passengers to being vaccinated before they get on a plane?”
Joyce said, “Yes, we are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say, for international travelers, that we will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft. Whether you need that domestically, we’ll have to see what happens with COVID-19."
"But certainly for international visitors coming out or people leaving the country, we think that’s a necessity," said Joyce.
A Current Affair also reported that Joyce believes this requirement will eventually be required worldwide.
"I think that's going to be a common thing talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe," said Joyce.
