Qantas Airline has announced a new route that will take passengers from Perth, Australia to London. It will be the largest non-stop air travel in the world, with a total duration of 17h30m.
The flight from Perth to London is almost 15,000 km and will be made in the new Boeing 787 Dreamliners that Qantas Airline will buy next year. The flight will surpass the longest in the world, from Dubai to Auckland, New Zealand, by Emirates Airlines – it is 16:35m long.
Qantas Airline flights from the new line will only begin in March 2018, but Perth is already positioning itself as a new international hub that will connect the South Pacific to Europe. At the moment I’m in Perth, and I took a very long trip to get here: it was 14 hours from Los Angeles to Sydney, and then another 5 hours to Perth. Or maybe it was not five o’clock – after the first 14 hours of flight, I thought I was going to die of fatigue and fortunately the second stage was much shorter than the first.
No matter how time-consuming the flight seems, we are in a much more comfortable situation than in the past. In 1938, a trip from London to Brisbane, Australia, lasted 11 days and had more than two dozen stops.
Passages for the new route between Perth and London will begin to be sold in April of next year, but prices have not yet been disclosed.
