“We’re hopeful that borders will reopen by Christmas and this new initiative to help get travellers on their next flight is the right step forward to rebooting the Australian tourism industry.”

The flexible booking changes are set to end on January 31, 2021.

Under the company’s ‘passenger promise’ travellers will be subject to a number of extra measures to ensure they are comfortable flying during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They will undertake a  health screening questionnaire, increased social distancing measures and hygiene practices will be in place.

All passengers will also get a complimentary facemask and hand sanitiser kit.
