The popular plans for a direct Perth to London flight with Qantas have been brought forward
There’s really nothing worse than flight stopovers adding bulk hours to an already huge trip, so we were totally on board when Qantas said they were launching direct flights from Perth to London- and sooner than expected.
The highly popular and much-anticipated route was set to take off on June 19th, but it’s now been brought forward with the first flights hitting the air on May 23rd.
It’s the first time ever that Perth has been directly connected to London, and it will no doubt be a huge win for holiday goers and people eager to get over and see family.
Mark McGowan has welcomed the move, saying it is yet another step set to reconnect Perth with the rest of the world.
“Re-establishing international and interstate flight routes is a key part of our $195 million Reconnect WA package, and we look forward to welcoming even more visitors from Europe back to WA safely, through these direct services.”
The Perth to London route sets the tone for Qantas’ direct Perth-Rome service, which is due to take off on June 22, 2022.
Tickets are set to go on sale today, May 4th, so visit Qantas and keep your eyes peeled.
