Qantas has announced that customers can now book non-stop flights from Australia to Europe for the first time. The Perth-London (Heathrow) route went on sale on 27th April 2017.
Melbourne-Perth-London on the B787
Daily flights will begin on 24 March 2018 and form part of a new Melbourne-Perth-London return service, a new QF9/10. Customers from other Australian cities will also be able to connect to London via Perth.
Services will be operated by our new Boeing 787-Dreamliner, designed specifically for comfort on long-haul sectors, offering:
- Built-in features to reduce jetlag and improve the overall travel experience;
- A high level of comfort in the cabins, with a lower seat count than most other airlines; and
- Tweaks to the inflight service so customers enjoy the journey even more.
Perth Airport experience
The experience for customers travelling through Perth will be seamless, with a new international transit lounge to be built at Perth Airport. Qantas customers on international and domestic flights will arrive and depart from the same terminal (T3/T4), with dedicated customs and immigration.
Changes to Melbourne international services and new A380 flying
The new QF9/10 will replace the existing Melbourne-Dubai-London services, offering Melbourne customers:
A faster flying time and quicker connections in Perth will reduce total travel time from London to Melbourne by more than an hour compared with existing A380 services.
The ongoing option to fly with partner Emirates on the Qantas code to Dubai and then direct to London or to nearly 40 destinations in Europe.
Our A380 that currently operates Melbourne-London will be redeployed to meet periods of high demand to destinations in Asia, including from Melbourne and Sydney to Hong Kong and Singapore.
The Qantas Dreamliner is a game-changer. Qantas are looking forward to offering their customers a level of convenience in linking Australia to Europe they’ve never had before. To book your flight to Europe, contact your dedicated Travel Advisor at FBI Travel on (03) 8573 0900.
