Qantas to cut more domestic capacity on Western Australia border opening delay

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Qantas Airways Ltd will cut domestic capacity by 10 more percentage points, to 60% of pre-pandemic levels, in the March quarter after the state of Western Australia indefinitely delayed opening its border, the carrier said on Friday.

Last week, the airline pared about a third of planned domestic and international capacity in the quarter, to better match demand after COVID-19 infections rose in other states.

Qantas, which ends its financial year in June, said it would provide more details on the impact of the changes in half-year results late next month.
