This week, we reported how Qantas is set to launch two new flights from Canberra, just weeks after smaller airlines took the gamble to service the more unusual routes.

In this episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, host Phil Tarrant and guest Adam Thorn discuss if Qantas’ move is bad ethics given the pandemic, or just a larger competitor rightly taking advantage of a free market?

Plus, with an Australia-purchased vaccine looking close to completion, what does the future hold for international border closures? Will the country open up early, or later, next year?

Finally, the team discusses Rex’s purchase of an ex-Virgin 737. Is the fight for the Golden Triangle now on?
