Final thoughts

While there are no new destinations introduced this week, again this is yet another encouraging sign, particularly with European services seeing more flights.

Of course these plans are fluid – as we saw in Melbourne, cities may go back into lockdown if there’s a flare up, with knock-on effects seen in flight schedules.

We are still nowhere near the reintroduction of leisure travel yet, but these flights and frequencies are encouraging signs that one day, we might just be able to get away for a holiday.
