This week, debate continued to wage over the state of Australia’s domestic and international borders, as Queensland and Western Australia stand strong on their hard borders.

In this episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn and reporter Hannah Dowling discuss where we stand in our journey towards the re-opening of state and international borders.

Plus, the team reveals NSW’s roadmap out of lockdown, and how this will impact the aviation sector.

Finally, the crew discusses Qantas’ major move away from Perth, as the state’s borders cause the airline to reconsider its flagship London-Perth route.

    As always, great podcast, just love your enthusiasm, brings a smile to my face listening to it.
    What else brings a smile to my face, is how you manage to say “you know” so many times, during a 41min podcast. As always, you are the winner Hannah with more than 60 times, Adam less than 10 😁😁
    Keep up the good work.
