Tourist numbers are an important indicator of how the property market will fare in the future, with many people being encouraged to buy in a country by what they see when they visit it for the first time.
And according to the report from Qantas and Emirates, Cairns and Hobart among other popular areas have seen five times more bookings from tourists than when a similar partnership was set up in Europe.
It comes a year after the two first teamed up to offer better access to Australian cities for Emirates customers.
“The joint network has delivered on its promise to boost inbound tourism for Australia and its regional cities in particular. This is in particular with Emirates customers booking on Qantas domestic services as part of their journey,” said Simon Hickey, chief executive officer, Qantas International.
