It’s been a surreal year for travel as the Covid-19 pandemic brought aviation to a halt and tourist destinations became ghost towns. Swipe through for some of the year’s defining photos.

Qantas airplanes were parked at Sydney Airport last April as stay-at-home orders were issued and travel came to a halt.

When Qantas announced plans to run a sightseeing “flight to nowhere” last October, tickets sold out in under 10 minutes. The flight thrilled Aussies who were barred from leaving the country for vacation.

One of the world’s top tourist destinations, the archaeological marvel Machu Picchu in Peru, was closed for months during the pandemic. The Inca citadel reopened late last year with new restrictive measures in place.
