In July, Australia limited the number of people who could arrive back in the country to manage the flow into hotel quarantine. The problem is, the decision has pushed up prices to eye-popping levels and reduced availability.
In this episode of the Australian Aviation podcast, host Phil Tarrant and regular guest Adam Thorn discuss how this slow-burn story has exploded in the last seven days. They examine what the options are, the industry’s collective position and whether the government will restart its repatriation program to assist.
They also discuss Friday’s now not-so-crunch meeting to decide the future of Virgin, where creditors will get to vote on quite how new owners Bain should take over.
Finally – while our industry might be shrinking on the surface, it’s also going through a period of exciting change. Just how long then, until we switch our Fords for flying cars?
