Qantas appears set to cancel all international flights except its New Zealand routes through to 2021.

Australia's national carrier has pulled all international inventory up to March 28 next year, bar NZ, Qantas today confirmed to nine.com.au.

According to Executive Traveller, Qantas has removed all international flights from its website into next year.

The only flights available to book on the Qantas website are with partner airlines, such as Emirates, British Airways and Cathay Pacific.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce last month foreshadowed a potential mass cancellation, stating international flights were unlikely to return to any real size until July 2021.

Passengers whose flights have been cancelled can get refunds or are issued travel vouchers.

Last month, Qantas confirmed it would shed 6000 jobs as part of a drastic three-year plan to slash costs by $15 billion.

Almost 15,000 other staff will remain stood down without pay or on enforced leave.

The airline hopes about half of those staff will be back at work by the end of the year.

But the remainder - mostly attached to international operations - have no clue when they might get a regular income again.
