It's here! It's happening! New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced quarantine-free travel for Australians hoping to enter the Land of the Long White Cloud, and with that short press conference, international travel is back on.
This is exciting news. Although, of course, there are caveats. There are dangers. So many, in fact, that this may not be the tourism boon we'd all been hoping for.
On this special bonus episode of Flight of Fancy, host Ben Groundwater is joined by Traveller's national editor Anthony Dennis to discuss the New Zealand travel bubble: what it is, what it means, and how it will survive into the future.
