Non-stop flights from London to Australia is coming soon

London to Australia

Qantas airlines has announced that it is currently settling negotiations with Perth airport that would allow a direct flight to land in Western Australia from London.

The airline provider says that a new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner would be implemented alongside the service, to make the 8,990 mile journey in one go.

As well as routes from Perth to London, flights are also in the pipeline to run from Sydney to Chicago and Melbourne to Dallas.

Alan Joyce, Chief Executive of Qantas said: "This aircraft allows us to fly routes that we could only imagine in the past.

"It ­allows us to fly from Perth to London, from Sydney to Chicago or Melbourne to Dallas."

Referring to the London-Perth route, he added: "It's such a great opportunity for Western Australia, it would be a shame if we couldn't close a deal. It's so game-changing ­because Australia has never been connected with Europe with a regular passenger service."

If confirmed, the flights will not take place until late 2017 at the earliest, while the first of the new 787-9s will be delivered in a year's time.

The aircraft will have room to seat 236 passengers, including 42 in business class and 28 in premium economy.

And while the journey may take several hours, there are plenty of new features to keep long haul flyers happy and comfortable.

There'll be new self-service bars - one in business and one in economy, a "foot net" to provide extra support for tired limbs, and fully redesigned seats.

Business class seats will recline to 80 inches, while seats will stretch to 32 inches in economy.

Expect to also see high-tech cabin lighting, with a simulated sunrise to "gently wake customers on morning flights".
