on 17 April will be cancelled. However services between Australia and Asian
destinations will operate as follows:
- QF1 will operate Sydney to Bangkok as scheduled

Customers due to travel on cancelled services will be transferred to
next available scheduled services or offered a refund. Next available services
to Europe are not known at this time and cannot be confirmed until official
notification from authorities in Europe on when flights can resume.
Qantas will be doing everything to meet passenger needs once flights
into Europe are able to resume however access to UK and European airports will
be difficult due to the backlog of flights from around the world. This
situation would be likely to continue for some days.
