Qantas cancels all international flights except New Zealand until October

Australia's Qantas has cancelled all its international flights except for flights between Australia and New Zealand until October, the airline announced.

According to a report from Dailymail, Qantas is cancelling its overseas schedule after Australia Trade Minister Simon Birmingham revealed on Wednesday the country's borders will remain closed for another four months.

A spokesperson from Qantas said, "With Australia’s borders set to remain closed for some time, we have cancelled most international flights until late October.

"We still have some flights scheduled across the Tasman in the coming months, with the expected travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand.

"Should travel between Australia and other countries open up and demand returns, we can add more flights back into our schedule."

Unlikely to reopen border to international passengers until next year

The Australian government was unlikely to reopen the border to international travellers until next year - but would look to relax entry rules for students and other long-term visitors, according to Birmingham.

To address the issue, Qantas is in the process of advising travel agents and passengers booked onto affected flights of the changes - with the Qantas website then expected to update with the new schedule.
