Perth prepares for non-stops

A new transit lounge is being built at Perth International Airport in Western Australia as preparations move into high gear for the launch of Qantas’ new B787 service from London, due to begin on 25 March next year. Tickets went on sale last week.

The daily return flights will make history by operating London – Perth non-stop before continuing to Melbourne on a route Qantas says is ideal for the Dreamliner, an aircraft “designed specifically for maximum comfort on long-haul sectors across all cabins”. 

The airline added: “Passengers will arrive refreshed and ready to go thanks to innovative built-in features that help to reduce jetlag and improve the overall travel experience.” 

Perth’s new transit lounge is in addition to the market-leading facilities that already exist at the airport, which offers a smooth transition for passengers heading for other parts of Australia.

International and domestic flights arrive at and depart from the same terminal, complete with dedicated customs and immigration. More details on the transit arrangements are being announced next month.

For a look at Qantas’ new campaign which launched officially across all channels at the weekend and features London, Perth and the airline’s new Dreamliner 787, follow the link
