It is clear from CAPA’s exclusive Capacity Projection Tool that Australia continues to struggle with its lack of international capacity. However, it has seen an impressive rebound in domestic capacity since the latest COVID-19 outbreaks soon after Christmas 2020. Projections for the country are that international capacity will climb towards the end of 2021 with the opening of selected travel corridors, but a total reopening of Australian international routes isn’t likely for some time. Any international increases in capacity will be driven by the trans-Tasman travel bubble with New Zealand.
New Zealand, much like Australia, eliminated COVID-19 early on, and once again, the benefits of this strategy are clear. New Zealand’s domestic capacity gained momentum in Jun-2020, after reaching record lows. Since then, the steady increase in capacity now means the country’s domestic market is near to 2019 levels. As in Australia, international capacity is likely going to take far longer to recover.
However, in April-2021 the New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a two-way travel bubble with Australia, scheduled to take effect from the 19-Apr-2021. In this important discussion, we look at the impact of COVID on tourism for the region and the industry.

The pandemic has changed the needs of Corporates and their travellers, both during and post pandemic. In this session we explore these changes and how TMC’s are meeting new expectations, and at what cost.
As the pandemic timeframe continues to extend, the impact on the corporate customer is becoming more evident. As we have a clearer picture of the vaccine rollout globally:
- How will the concept of Vaccine Passports work?
- How will corporates get their younger travellers vaccinated if governments reserve vaccine supplies in the public health system and prioritise older and more vulnerable groups?
- Can the travel industry get moving again in 2021 under these scenarios?
- Will / when might a private market appear for vaccinations, and a more cost effective and acceptable approach to testing?
Some destination countries are suggesting they won’t re-open for visitors until 70% of their own population have been vaccinated, this may delay potential recovery in travel well into 4th Quarter 2021 for many countries. We explore these points with our expert panel.

It cannot be denied that leading any part of an airline in 2021 is going to look very different than ever before. The impact of COVID-19 has required all airlines to reassess their processes, innovate and adapt to a new world order.
In November, CAPA’s Chairman Emeritus stated: “It is important to have some sort of reality check now that we’re nine months on from the onset of this COVID-19 disaster. Fundamentally, we’re looking at a new platform from which the industry will build over the next decade.
What will the new situation be like? Most people realise now, unless they're really deluding themselves, that it is going to be a structurally very different industry”.
As we look further into 2021, we ask key airline executives to explore how they will run their business differently and what they expect from the year ahead.
- How has COVID-19 impacted processes within airline management?
- How has the additional focus of staff and passenger safety changed the way airlines are run?
- What will recovery look like?
