Australia’s Golden Triangle between Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane finally reopens after Queensland lifts its border restrictions to the NSW capital and all of Victoria. Qantas and Jetstar estimate 9,000 passengers were booked to travel on Tuesday from Sydney and Melbourne to Queensland. The airline group now says it will operate more than 420 return flights per week across 19 routes between Queensland and both Sydney and Melbourne. This compares with around 40 return flights per week when borders were closed. It also means Sydney-Brisbane and Melbourne-Brisbane have returned to their pre-COVID position in the top three busiest air routes in the country – effectively re-establishing the so-called Golden Triangle.
