Earlier this month, Qantas reopened international flight bookings for July 2021. But then, this week, Australia’s current and former Chief Medical Officers both said they didn’t expect regular international travel to Australia to resume until 2022.

Also in this episode, Matt discusses the current state border arrangements, the impact of the recent reduction to Australia’s international arrival caps and how you can claim your share of free Velocity Frequent Flyer points.
