MORE QANTAS QUEENSLAND FLIGHTS

Our friends at Qantas have announced an increase in flights between the ACT and Queensland following the lifting of border restrictions, including introducing a new seasonal route between Canberra and the Gold Coast.

That means that, from 25 September, for the first time in more than two decades the national carrier will operate up to four flights each week between Canberra and the Gold Coast.

Qantas is also increasing flights between Canberra and Brisbane from four flights per week to 14 flights—adding an extra 2200 seats each week between the two cities.

“We’re delighted to learn of these developments,” says The Travel Authority Group’s CEO, Peter Hosper.

“Every additional flight put on by Australian carriers is a step in the right direction. They instill confidence that we will emerge from this Covid mess soon and travel again.”

Peter Hosper CEO – The Travel Authority Group.

The new Gold Coast services will operate on Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday. The flights will be operated by a dual class Boeing 717 featuring 12 Business Class seats and 98 seats in Economy.

Business Class

Acknowledging the impetus behind the new services, QantasLink CEO John Gissing said, “We know there is significant pent up demand for domestic travel with Australians wanting to explore their own backyard. We’ll monitor demand on the route and if it proves successful, we could look to operating flights over the summer school holiday period.”

ETIHAD’S Global COVID-19 Insurance

Etihad Airways is introducing COVID-19 global wellness insurance cover as part of the airline’s health and hygiene program—Etihad Wellness.

So, what’s it all about?

Etihad passengers who are diagnosed with COVID-19 during their trip won’t have to worry about medical expenses or quarantine costs.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 while you’re away from home, Etihad’s COVID-19 global wellness insurance will cover up to EUR150K of medical costs, and up to EUR100 per day of quarantine costs in case of a positive diagnosis for 14 days.

“This is a welcome initiative by the national carrier of the UAE. While we’re still a way from anything resembling a ‘normal’ flying environment, program’s like this play an important role in rebuilding passenger and client confidence.”

Peter Hosper – CEO, The Travel Authority Group.

All Etihad tickets, regardless of date of booking, traveling between now and 31 December 2020 will include the COVID-19 insurance. If you have an existing booking you don’t need to do anything—you will be automatically enrolled into the program.

The insurance is valid worldwide for 31 days from the first day of travel.

“The introduction of global COVID-19 insurance, in partnership with AXA, builds on stringent measures already in place as part of our Etihad Wellness program” said Duncan Bureau, Senior Vice President Sales and Distribution, Etihad Airways.

“This additional cover will not only instil confidence to travel but also reassure our guests that we are doing all we can to keep them safe and protected. As more countries start opening their borders, we are making it as easy as possible for our guests to plan their next trip, hassle free,” Bureau added.
