Qantas will continue to operate all flights from London Heathrow to Australia via Darwin until at least June 2022.
When Qantas resumed scheduled flights from London Heathrow to Australia in late 2021, it chose to route flights to both Melbourne and Sydney via Darwin instead of Perth and Singapore.
Qantas had planned to reinstate non stop flights from London to Perth from Sunday 27 March 2022. These are postponed until at least June 2022. This is due to the decision by the Premier of Western Australia Mark McGowan to extend the closure of its international border.
Qantas will also continue to route flights from London Heathrow to Sydney via Darwin instead of Singapore until at least June 2022. The airline is provisionally due to reinstate Airbus A380 services to Sydney from 20 June 2022.
Note these changes are not currently reflected in online tables.
Direct flights from London to Australia via Singapore will resume when BA returns to Sydney from 27 March after an absence of two years.
In the case of BA, its service from London Heathrow to Singapore will continue to operate as a “Vaccinated Travel Lane” flight. Passengers must meet the requirements of both the Australian and Singapore governments to be eligible to travel.
