Qantas is to bring forward its planned return of non-stop flights between London Heathrow and Perth.
Since Qantas resumed passenger flights between the UK and Australia all have operated non-stop to Darwin.
Qantas had planned to restore its non-stop link to Perth in June, at the same time as Airbus A380 flights to Sydney via Singapore.
This is now brought forward to Monday 23 May 2022. As before COVID-19, the flight will continue between Perth and Melbourne.
There have been reports of operational problems flying non-stop between Darwin and London, with passengers’ bags left behind in some instances.
Perth will also again a non-stop link to Rome shortly afterwards with a new seasonal Qantas service between 25 June and 6 October 2022.
