Bushfire relief and recovery

Latest News|Published 14 January 2020

Our thoughts are with all those impacted by the terrible bushfires in parts of Australia and those working so hard to fight them. 

To support Australia’s communities affected by the devastating bushfires, Qantas and Jetstar Australia have donated $1m to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund. And we’re encouraging our Agents who wish to contribute to donate too.

Together, we can help Red Cross to provide resources and personnel to evacuation and recovery centres across Australia, and the provision of emergency grants to those who have lost homes. To donate directly to the Australian Red Cross, click here

Advice and alerts for travel to Australia

Most destinations in Australia remain safe and continue to welcome visitors. It is more important than ever to support Australian tourism providers, whether in unaffected regions or those that will recover from these bushfires in the months and years to come. The best way to support Australia, Australian communities, and the tourism sector is to keep visiting.

All international airports in Australia are currently operating as normal. We encourage all travellers visiting Australia to seek the most up-to-date information for their planned itinerary prior to departure, and remain informed about changing conditions while in Australia.
