While some Australian airlines slated early July as the date for ramping flights back up, the continuing uncertainty around open borders is perpetuating a lack of confidence in the sector about whether this will actually happen.

In this episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant, Christian “Boo” Boucousis and Adam Thorn delve into a minister’s hint around keeping international borders closed, Australia’s acquisition of its third Triton, and an “unsettling” development in the Virgin saga.

They discuss the ACCC’s crack down on dissatisfied Qantas customers, Avalon Airport’s security upgrade investment, and a Melbourne-based medical drone company that has capitalised on the current crisis.
