AirAsia Chief Says Asian Nations Could Mandate COVID-19 Shots For Travellers

On Wednesday AirAsia Group’s CEO Tony Fernandes said, Governments in Asia could require inbound travellers to receive COVID-19 vaccinations, with such conditions expected to become a trend in the region.

At a CAPA Centre for Aviation event Fernandes said: “I foresee in Asia anyway, I think they won’t let anyone in without a vaccination.”

Fernandes said airlines are not likely to set such requirements for travellers.

He said: “It’s not up to the airlines to decide. It’s for governments to decide. It’ll be the country that’ll decide if they will allow people to come in if they are not vaccinated.”

Aviation industry opposition to requiring mandatory COVID-19 vaccination for passengers has intensified as impending drug approvals trigger a debate over their role in air travel.
