Article heading image for Qantas to stand down two-thirds of employees temporarily as they release list of affected travel routes.

A number of Cairns flights to destinations across Australia and the world will be impacted due to the decision. 

Today, the company has released a full list of the reworked network, and also those which will be suspended until further notice.
