This follows the news that Australia is reopening its borders in November, to allow residents and citizens to enter and leave the country. Under the new rules, vaccinated residents will be able to quarantine at home for seven days on arrival, as opposed to having to complete the current 14-day hotel quarantine when they land in Australia.

Currently, international tourists are not permitted to travel to Australia, but a government spokesperson said that they were working on welcoming tourists back to the country.

Bookings for flights between Abu Dhabi and Sydney are now open.
