Qantas Airways has begun regular non-stop service between Australia and London. The first 17 hour plus flight took off from Perth in Western Australia.
The maiden flight of a new non-stop regular passenger service between Australia and Britain has touched down at London’s Heathrow Airport.
The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, operated by Qantas Airways, arrived Sunday in London just over 17 hours after setting off from the western Australian city of Perth.
The new link with Perth — a 14,498-kilometer (9,009-mile) journey — is around three hours quicker than routes that involve stopovers in the Middle East to change planes or refuel. – Fox News
