SYDNEY (AP) — The boss of Australia’s largest airline says that once a coronavirus vaccine becomes widely available, it may require passengers to use it before they can travel abroad.

Qantas Chief Executive Alan Joyce told Australia’s Network Nine television he has been talking to his counterparts at other airlines around the world about the possibility of a “vaccination passport” for overseas travelers.

Australia has imposed some of the most severe border restrictions in the world since the pandemic began.

Those restrictions have helped the nation of 26 million people tame its outbreak.
