Qantas Non-Stop Perth to London
on 14 Feb 2017
From March 2018, Qantas will launch non-stop Boeing 787-9 flights between Perth and London, in a move that will see the Western Australian city positioned as the airline's gateway for direct Dreamliner flights to Europe.
Qantas will begin selling tickets for the flights by April 2017 when the pricing structure is released, though Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce, has yet to confirm whether the price will be the same as the flight via Dubai, or if there will be a surcharge added for the convenience of a non-stop service.
Qantas has yet to reveal the timings of its Perth-London flight but have confirmed the flight will take approximately 17 hours from take-off to landing. In addition to the shortest and fastest version of the Kangaroo Route in Qantas’ 70-year history, the airline is also considering non-stop flights to Paris, Rome and Frankfurt on the airline's new Boeing 787-9.
