Qantas have announced that as of March 2018, they will begin non-stop flights between Perth and London making it the 'first regular passenger service to directly link Australia with Europe.'
According to Qantas Group CEO, Alan Joyce, this flight is set to be a 'game-changer' that will open up a host of new opportunities between the continents in 'travel, tourism and trade.'
The flight will take approximately 17 hours (depending on winds) on the 787-9 Dreamliner and will cover 14,498 kilometres.
The Dreamliner will be able to accommodate 236 passengers in Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class.
Once operational, this flight will be the 'longest dreamliner flight in the world.'
