Hollywood Here We Come : Perth Los Angeles Direct anyone?
Air travel from Perth to North America is about to get a whole lot easier.
At some point in the near future, Qantas are set to announce they will fly direct from Perth, Western Australia to Los Angeles, California on new aircraft set to be produced by Boeing and Airbus – it’ll be a complete game changer for air travel between Australia and the US.
And we know what you’re thinking. Yes, the flights could even be Perth Vancouver direct, or Perth San Francisco direct, or Perth Rio de Janeiro Direct.
The future of air travel and international travel is looking fantastic for Perthites.
No longer will you need to stop in Auckland, Sydney or Hawaii to get to North America. We could also be flying near the Antarctic continent to get directly to South America.
Boeing’s 777-8X aircraft is the plane for the job, while the Airbus A350-900ULR could also be enlisted by Qantas. Both aircraft are likely capable of distances up to or beyond 16,000 km in range, depending on how many passengers and other factors.
The Boeing 777
It’s all part of a Qantas – Boeing investigation called ‘Project Sunrise’ – testing the capability and capacity of the aircraft to make this seemingly out of reach direct routes possible in the next few years. The project name is a nod to the “Double Sunrise” flights Qantas operated between Perth and Sri Lanka using Catalinas during World War 2.
“This is a last frontier in global aviation,” Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said in October 2017.
“The antidote to the tyranny of distance. And a revolution for air travel in Australia,” he waxed poetically.
