Austrian abolishes testing obligation for inbound travelers

The cancellation of the testing obligation does not mean that there are no longer any travel restrictions: anyone who wants to travel to Australia must still be fully vaccinated. In addition, travelers must complete a health form and wear a face mask on the flight to Australia.

Cheap to Australia
Thanks to Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, it is now relatively cheap to fly from Europe to Austria. This low-cost airline does not fly to Schiphol, but does fly to Berlin and Athens. From there, return tickets to Sydney are sold for around 700 euros.

The Dutch will therefore first have to take the train, a budget flight or the car to the German capital, or a budget flight to Athens, but for those who have a lot of time this can still be very convenient. Think for example of backpackers or other young tourists.

Scoot will also fly to London Gatwick this summer, but the tickets are a bit more expensive there, partly due to the high British air passenger tax.
