New Zealand officials have said Cook Islands and Niue could potentially join Australia in a safe travel "bubble" with New Zealand - the first such travel bubble in the world.
The Australian and New Zealand Tourism Working group can also be growing plans to set up a trans-Tasman bubble that will likely be thought of by each nations' governments.
"Neither Canberra Airport [nor] Wellington Airport [are] taking many, if any, repatriation flights, so they're effectively clean terminals which means there isn't the co-mingling of passengers and there's far less risk to other security and border staff", Thomson said.
Before the Covid-19 outbreak, Australia was the most popular overseas travel destination for Kiwis, while New Zealand was the most popular offshore destination for Australians. "As one of the safest destinations in Australia, Canberra is ready and willing to accept travellers under a Trans-Tasman arrangement".
Canberra Airport has no involvement with the safe border group.
The Wellington Chamber of Commerce and Auckland Business Chamber have additionally thrown their weight behind the proposal.
