Qantas offering non-stop-flights from London to Perth in 2018

Australian airline Qantas – in a world first – is now offering non-stop flights from London Heathrow to Perth, making it easier than ever for travellers to reach Australia from the UK with a minimum of fuss.

The 17-hour flight will be taking off in March 2018, making it not only the longest non-stop passenger route in the world, but also cutting time off the return routing for Europe-bound travellers coming back from Australia. ‘It will save you an hour going through Perth compared to Dubai or Singapore or other destinations’ said Qantas CEO Alan Joyce. Perth Airport's international Terminal 3 will be upgraded to accommodate the increase in passengers, with new lounges as well as smooth connection facilities to help travellers reach other points in Australia.

The convenience is welcomed by many travellers, as layover time will also be cut out from the middle of the routing. Moreover, the flight will take place on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which uses high cabin air pressure and humidity as well as larger windows to minimise the effects of jet lag on its 236 passengers.
