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.

Australian Business Traveller reports the flights will not codeshare with Emirates as air traffic rights deem the route can only be flown by Australian or UK-designated airlines.

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.
