Longest non-stop flight from Perth to London in 2018
Quantas Airlines confirms it will operate non-stop flights from Perth to London using the 787-9 Dreamliner.
The 14,498 kilometer service will be the first regular passenger service to directly link Australia with Europe when it begins in March 2018 and will take approximately 17 hours. It also will be the longest Boeing Dreamliner flight in the world.
Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce:” When we designed the interior of our 787s, we wanted to make sure passengers would be comfortable on the extended missions the aircraft was capable of.That’s why we have features in our Economy seats that other airlines reserve for Premium Economy. Our Business Suite has been nicknamed ‘mini First class’ by many of our frequent flyers. And we’re redesigning our on-board service to help reduce jetlag,” he added.
Seats on the Perth-London flights will go on sale in April 2017 for the first services in March 2018. The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners used on the route will carry 236 passengers across Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.
