Agreed.

After listening to a number of webinars, it’s clear that this situation is taking a considerable mental toll on some.

Whatever the technical and legal answer may be, the "practical" answer is Yes.

"All persons entering WA must quarantine at an approved facility, currently the only approved facility is at Ginbata Airport GBW / YGIA."

Followed by....

"Persons must pay the cost of 14 days tent quarantine, currently at $1,000 / day."

And if airlines didn't get the hint.......

"This also applies to all airline crew but due to the additional risk all airline crew must quarantine for 28 days"

As my Papa says, "There's more than one way to skin a cat".

Was up at Tamworth and the talk is that they are bringing in overseas ( Asian ) pilots as FOs on the Dash using 457 visas.
I was working as a builders labourer ( gratis ) during the full lockdowns for my son in laws new house build and the other builders labourer was an Emirates 380 FO. He was a very hard worker and I am sure would have taken any aviation job going after his Emirates stand down.

In regards to bringing in 457 visas but I’m sorry what a load of crap.

There is absolutely no talk of that happening. Recruitment is planned for later this year and most likely will be to fill in MEL and SYD spots initially.

There are plenty of locals who would be more than suitable. QLink will also most likely issue an internal EOI first, just like NJS and Network have done.

There is also bound to be a few cadets from the QFPP academy who are due to finish soon and those who have made it through the selection process could possibly be offered a spot.

An EOI for dash spots in ML and SY has already gone out to Jetstar Wide-body pilots.

Rumours circulating that an EOI is imminent for 787 & 330 SO’s to return from LWOP early.

747 RIN completed with ground schools scheduled for next month.

All who took LWOP will be offered to return prior to end of year.

With a mix of repat and potential travel bubbles, all are required to meet the demand

sorry about that.

try this

QANTAS GROUP RECOVERY GATHERS SPEED
• Group Domestic capacity increasing beyond previous estimates to reach 90 per cent of pre-COVID levels in Q4 FY21; Jetstar to exceed 100 per cent due to strong leisure demand.
• All Qantas and Jetstar domestic crew now back at work.
• Recovery strategy puts short term focus on cash positive flying over profit margins – meaning more low
fares to help drive demand.
• Continuing to target resumption of rest of international network from late October; continued flexibility
for customers.
• Premium international lounges in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to reopen.
• New deal signed with Accor

And yet:
Covid-19: Australia will have 1000 cases a week if borders are opened, Scott Morrison warns
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison says there would be at least 1000 coronavirus cases in Australia every week if the international borders were to open, even when vulnerable people are vaccinated.
Morrison was asked by Perth radio 6PR to clarify Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt’s comments earlier this week that international travel could remain off-limits even if the entire population is vaccinated.
The Prime Minister also laid out future plans to allow Australians to travel overseas for business and funerals and potentially quarantine at home, before allowing mass travel again.
...
Asked if that meant the entire world would need to be vaccinated before Australia could reopen, Morrison said it was a “moving situation”.
“We can’t control what is happening in the rest of the world,” he said, adding that quarantine-free travel had already opened to New Zealand.

He said work was underway to open a travel bubble with Singapore, but ruled out similar pathways for Europe, the United States, India, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and other countries with large outbreaks.

I think the point that ScoMo is trying to make, is that even with 1000 cases a week, it will result in minimal deaths, assuming the vulnerable are vaccinated.

We need the media to report deaths or serious illness, not cases. Zero cases forever is fantasy land!

I don’t think it refers to deaths at all.......but draw your own conclusions!

And further to this, what he is trying to say is that we can’t have those case numbers if State Premiers continue carrying on and locking borders at the sound of someone sneezing.

Common sense would say if your most vulnerable are vaccinated, and state premiers agree not to close borders when cases emerge, then you can open up flying from International destinations in a controlled way (ie from permitted countries and to those who have been vaccinated).

But common sense ain’t all that common amongst our so called political ‘leaders’.

VIC, NSW and QLD will not be open if there is so called ‘thousands’ of cases a week.

Pipe dream.
