9009 miles (14,499 km) and a scheduled flight time of almost 20 hours make flights to Perth in Australia an expensive destination, even in economy class. Right now, however, you can book Qantas flights from London Heathrow to Perth, Australia for only €873 (~£788). For less than €100 (~£90) more, you can even choose to fly nonstop (or even only €20 (~£18) more, if you only fly nonstop in one direction!
A checked bag up to 30 kg is included in this price. Fares haven’t been so low for quite a while.
The airline will operate a Boeing 787 on the nonstop 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.

You’ll have to stay in Australia for at least 3 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.
