Tears of joy flowed as the industry celebrated South Australia opening its borders to NSW again with the first Qantas flight departing from Sydney to Adelaide yesterday.
In celebration of the South Australian border reopening to NSW residents from Thursday 24th September, the South Australian Tourism Commission and Qantas have marked the first interstate Qantas flight from Sydney to Adelaide since restrictions lifted.
Cue happy tears at the arrivals gate.
Reunited at last…
The SYD-ADL Qantas flight marks the SA border reopening to NSW.
This means travellers from New South Wales will now be able to enter South Australia without the need to undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine.
After several weeks of border closures due to COVID-19 interstate travel restrictions, the South Australian Tourism Commission and Qantas are delighted to welcome back travellers to the state and reunite families that have been apart since COVID-19 began.
How incredibly wonderful is that? So good!
A real-life version of this Qantas tear jerker…? We think so.
As well as joyful reunions, this border opening marks the start of being able to travel and explore, once again.
NSW is South Australia’s second-largest inbound market, with the return of interstate travel set to have a significant impact on the state’s tourism economy.
As the state looks forward to welcoming back family and friends, the SATC is also reminding others that South Australia is a destination you have to see to believe.
Visitors from NSW spend more than $779 million each year in South Australia, with one in four domestic visitors to SA coming from NSW, and it’s not hard to see why.
From vineyard tours in the Barossa Valley to luxury lodges on Kangaroo Island, glamping in the Flinders, and shark cage diving in Port Lincoln, NSW residents will now be able to discover the state’s world-class food and drink, jaw-dropping landscapes, abundant wildlife, vibrant city life, and iconic coastal culture.
So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get back out there…
