Qantas has removed the requirement for international passengers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 effective from next Tuesday.

A Qantas spokesperson said the “move follows the Australian Government removing the proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirement for international travellers coming to Australia.

“Vaccination against COVID-19 may still be required by certain countries, so passengers should check the requirements of the country they are travelling to.

“Qantas Group employees will still need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in line with Qantas Group policy.

“Additionally, masks will continue to be required where government regulations stipulate they must be worn, including on board domestic flights in Australia.”

About was developed to provide everyone in the world a one-stop shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.

Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety – with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline, you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations, as well as the airlines, own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.

Over 230 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world’s passengers have a product rating. Given that low-cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline.
