Qantas has advised that it will be operating at 15 per cent of its domestic capacity prior to the coronavirus pandemic from 22 June, and it aims to lift this to 40 per cent by the end of July. The progressive increase in flights will enable about 2,000 of the carrier’s employees to resume working. CEO Alan Joyce says a growing number of customers are starting to plan and book flights for coming months. Failed rival Virgin Australia is currently operating about 76 return flights each week, which are being subsidised by the federal government.
