History made as flying kangaroo reconnects Australia to India



Qantas will launch the first new international route from Melbourne since the onset of Covid-19 when it begins direct flights to Delhi next month.

The new service will take off on December 22 and will initially operate four times a week from Melbourne to Delhi via Adelaide using an Airbus A330, with the return leg flying directly from Delhi to Melbourne.

The announcement came as Qantas resumed regular long-haul international flying out of Melbourne for the first time since March 2020.

The airline re-started flights to Singapore today with flights to London via Darwin set to follow later this week, allowing hundreds of Melbourne-based crew to begin returning to work.

Melbourne Airport CEO Lyell Strambi said that while international travel would take time to recover from Covid- 19, the new Delhi service was a huge vote of confidence in Victoria.

“Direct international air services are worth millions of dollars to the state’s economy”, he said.

“Not only do they allow easier access for visiting family and friends, tourists, skilled workers and students, they also give local exporters the ability to send time-critical produce into huge overseas markets.

“We’re working with our airline partners and the Victorian state government to restore the capacity we’ve lost during the pandemic, and to explore potential opportunities for new routes.

“The Melbourne-Delhi link is a major addition to Qantas’ route network, and one we believe has significant potential.

“To ensure these new services remain viable it is vital the federal government commits to re-opening to all fully- vaccinated travellers as soon as possible.

“Australians have had the opportunity to come home and given our high levels of community vaccination, the time is right to welcome back the rest of the world”.

Qantas has rolled out a range of new initiatives including a customised digital travel guide designed to help passengers navigate travel requirements before they leave home.

Mastering decision-making and avoiding analysis paralysis



In today’s fast-paced world inundated with endless choices, mastering decision-making has become an essential skill.

The digital age has provided us with an unprecedented array of options, from the products we purchase to the paths we choose in our careers and personal lives. With this abundance of choices, individuals often find themselves overwhelmed and paralyzed by indecision.

To navigate this intricate landscape, one must adopt a strategic approach to decision-making. The first step is to clarify your objectives. Clearly define what you want to achieve or the problem you aim to solve.

This sets the foundation for a focused decision-making process.

Gather information

Next, gather information and consider your options. In the digital age, information is readily available, but it’s crucial to distinguish between credible sources and misinformation. Seek advice from trusted experts or mentors when necessary.

Furthermore, embrace the power of prioritization. Not all choices are created equal, and some may have more significant impacts than others. Identify your priorities and allocate your time and resources accordingly.

Additionally, practice mindfulness and self-awareness. Understanding your values, beliefs, and biases can help you make decisions aligned with your true self. This introspective approach can lead to more fulfilling choices.

Lastly, don’t fear making mistakes. In a world full of options, no decision is entirely risk-free. Embrace the learning opportunities that come with making choices, whether they lead to success or setbacks.

By mastering decision-making in this age of abundance, you can lead a more purposeful and satisfying life. Remember, your choices shape your destiny, and with the right strategies, you can navigate the sea of options with confidence.
