The Australian national carrier Qantas plans to impose a new requirement for the potential international travelers - to prove that they were vaccinated against Covid-19 before the flight. This was announced by CEO Alan Joyce, CNN reports.

If the person has not been vaccinated, he/she will not be allowed on board.

The company plans to implement such measures after the post-coronavirus vaccine becomes available to all Qantas customers.

"Whether you need that domestically, we will have to see what happens with Covid-19 in the market. But certainly, for international visitors coming out and people leaving the country, we think that's a necessity," the statement said.

As we reported earlier, France is preparing to kick off a nationwide Covid vaccination campaign in January.

"We're preparing a campaign to be ready for launch the moment a vaccine is approved by European and national health authorities," government spokesman Gabriel Attal said.

France has budgeted 1.5 billion euros ($1.77 billion) to buy vaccines in 2021, Attal added.
