Podcast: Adelaide Airport’s MD talks Australia’s COVID response

written by Robyn Tongol | November 22, 2022

Domestic travel in Australia may have bounced back to pre-pandemic highs, but our international passenger traffic is still far down on 2019.

In this special episode, Adelaide Airport’s MD, Brenton Cox, talks through how his organisation coped during those tough COVID-19 days and what we got right and wrong.

He tells host Adam Thorn that we must learn the lessons of 2020 for the future and argues that state border closures should have been decided by the federal government rather than state governments.

Finally, the pair discuss what Australia needs to do as a nation to encourage tourists to return and how the industry can navigate its staff shortages.

    I would advise people to take Australia off their travel list forever. Who would ever go to such a police-state. The way the government handled Covid was embarrassing to the rest of the world, shocking!
