9009 miles (14,499 km) and a scheduled flight time of 17 hours and 20 minutes make this fight Nr. 3 on the list of longest non-stop passenger flights ever: Qantas’ connection between London Heathrow and Perth, Australia. This might sound like madness to some while to others it’s a checkbox on their travel bucket list. If you’re in the latter group, this might be an offer for you. Qantas is selling tickets for prices starting at £835/€935. Fares haven’t been so low for quite a while.
The airline will operate a Boeing 787 an all flights. Due to features such as higher humidity and cabin pressure, chances of arriving at your destination without dry eyes or headache are higher than with other aircraft models. Of course, the long flight time will still take its toll.
