Australia’s treasurer said he’s considering measures to support firms like Qantas Airways Ltd. and others that are still struggling with fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, once the government’s JobKeeper wage subsidy expires late next month.

“We are looking at other measures that we can put in place post-JobKeeper to support a range of industries including the aviation sector,” Josh Frydenberg said in an interview with Sky News on Sunday.
