Qantas begins selling direct Perth-London flights
Non-stop flights starting at $2,270 for economy return.
As announced late last year, Qantas Airways will begin operating direct services between Perth and London from March 2018. The first batch of non-stop flights go on sale today, starting at $2,270 return.
The first flight will depart Perth on 24 March 2018. Passengers will travel to the United Kingdom aboard the airline's Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, offering economy, premium economy and business class fares.
Qantas' daily services will depart Perth Airport at 6:50pm and arrive at London Heathrow at 5:10am the following day. Returning flights will leave Heathrow at 1:30pm and land at Perth 1:15pm the next day.
This equates to around 17 hours flying time, making it one of the most lengthy passenger flights available.
Fares start at $2,270 for economy return, $4,250 for premium economy and $9,725 for business class.
Book: Fares available via Flight Centre for dates from 24 March 2018 - only up to one year in advance.
Earlier this year, Qantas announced plans to open a new Perth International Lounge during the first few months of 2018 to cater for eligible passengers travelling the non-stop route to London.
