IATA Applauds Australia's Border Reopening Announcement

IATA Regional Vice President, Asia Pacific, Philip Goh welcomed Australia's latest development on border reopening:

"Today’s announcement by the Australian government to open its borders to all vaccinated travelers from 21 February 2022 is greatly welcomed by the airline community and a big step forward. The Asia Pacific region has been very cautious in its approach to border restrictions so far but in recent weeks, we have seen growing momentum towards relaxation of travel restrictions – in the Philippines, Thailand, and to some extent New Zealand. We urge other governments in the Asia Pacific to look at similarly further easing their border restrictions so as to enable aviation businesses to accelerate their much needed recovery and to bring maximum benefits to their economies."
