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. You can buy tickets for prices starting at €873 (~£738). A checked bag up to 30kg is included in this price. 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.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, tickets will be sold until January 31, 2020. The fare rules give a bevy of possible travel periods and contradicting blockout periods, so allow us to narrow it down for you – flights at the lowest fare are available in late October and November 2020. Singular dates can be found in April and May 2020.
You’ll have to stay in Australia for at least two days or one night from Saturday to Sunday, and the maximum you can spend in the ‘Land down under’ before returning to Europe is 6 months.
Use Google Flights (instructions). The tool will show you all available connections and also forward you to Qantas website for booking if you wish. Another option is comparing prices via our flight search, which will save you some money and also result in paying the promoted price.
