Billed as “the most advanced long-haul aircraft of its type”, the Qantas Dreamliner has established a new standard of comfort in the air. Launched in 2018, it features just 236 seats, meaning more room to relax in than most other long-haul aircraft. Its windows are even 65 per cent larger than its closest competitors. In turn, passengers in Business are treated to a staggered seat configuration, affording direct aisle access, while Economy seats feature moodlighting, foot nets and bespoke fabrics. It’s all created by Australian native David Caon – a leading industrial designer.
Introducing a world-first, passengers flying with Qantas can now travel non-stop between London Heathrow and Perth. It’s all down to the new Dreamliner 787-9, host to market-leading Economy seats, innovative Premium Economy offerings and a Business class furnished with all of the features you’d typically find in first. What’s more, Qantas’s 17-hour flight has cut journey times by up to an hour to destinations across Australia, thanks to the efficiency of Perth’s brand-new transit lounge. And, for those travelling in Business, London’s new flagship premium lounge sees customers off in style.
Qantas's daily London–Sydney service will route via Singapore, rather than Dubai. It offers travellers the chance to experience one of Asia's most dynamic cities where an intriguing history plays out to a skyscraping backdrop. As part of the shakeup, the daily Singapore–Melbourne service has been upgraded from an A330 to an A380 and, in lieu of the above, the London–Dubai–Melbourne route has been replaced by the direct 787 Dreamliner service to Perth, travelling onwards to Melbourne. Passengers continue to have access to Qantas codeshares services, offering flights from six airports in the UK with Emirates to Dubai and then onwards to Australia.
