Airlines are eyeing a return to international travel by mid-2021, and in the meantime local flights are on the rise after a horror year for the travel industry.

Demand for domestic flights is soaring just in time for Christmas, with Virgin Australia's 12-hour sale helping boost demand.

The surge of support came at a crucial time, with Qantas projecting today that it would lose $11 billion in revenue this financial year.

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, Qantas flight QF100, prepares to take off from Kingsford Smith International airport.

In an update to shareholders, the airline announced it would return to 80 per cent of pre-COVID domestic capacity in the coming months, with immediate extra flights to Perth and 11 new routes added to the network.

More seats will also be available for frequent flyer points.

The hope is that more international flights will bring more jobs, with airlines hoping for a return to overseas travel by July next year.
