Australian Aviation's Blair Dods waits for his Air New Zealand 787-9, ZKNZQ msn 39296, to depart Auckland for Sydney
Australian Aviation’s Blair Dods waits for his Air New Zealand 787-9, ZKNZQ msn 39296, to depart Auckland for Sydney on the day the trans-Tasman bubble opened.

This week marked the most significant moment since the start of the COVID crisis as the trans-Tasman bubble opened.

And being the intrepid reporters we are, Australian Aviation’s own Blair Dods was on one of the very first flights from New Zealand to Australia on Monday (in what we called the Blair Ditch Project, naturally).

On this week’s episode, host Phil Tarrant and guest Adam Thorn ask Blair to give his experience and discuss whether the bubble will help prop up the industry or burst at the first sign of a COVID case.

Finally, the team discusses the return of the Capacity Wars, as both Qantas and Virgin fight to restore their market share in an increasingly hostile market.
