Airfares down – Take a break says government

Qantas and Jetstar have joined Virgin in scrapping the fuel levy from airfares on domestic routes but will keep the surcharge on international routes. Australia's workforce has 121 million days of accumulated annual leave and the federal government's minister for tourism, Martin Ferguson, says people should go on a domestic holiday to boost the tourism industry. "Have a break from work because, remember this: no leave means no life … It's better for your family and you go back to work an even better worker."
