The airline will also look to increase services between Sydney and Hobart as well as Sydney and Launceston once NSW becomes a “low risk” state.

As a result of the border opening, Virgin Australia announced it would increase flights between Brisbane and Hobart from twice weekly to three times a week as of October 19.

“If public health suggests its not safe to open our borders, then we won’t … I’m confident, unless something completely outside of the mind box occurs, we’ll be opening our border on the 26th of October,” he said.

While a date has been set for the other states, Mr Gutwein said he would revoke his decision to open if the health advice was against it.

From October 26, residents of South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland, the Northern Territory and the ACT will be able to enter Tasmania without quarantining, Premier Peter Gutwein announced on Friday.
