Qantas will launch the first non-stop passenger service between Australia and Europe in March 2018 , using the revolutionary 787-9 Dreamliner on the 14,498km route between Perth and London.
“When Qantas created the Kangaroo Route to London in 1947, it took four days and nine stops," said Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce .
"Now it will take just 17 hours from Perth non-stop.
"The opportunities this opens up are huge."
The Boeing 787-9 features extraordinary fuel efficiency, making Perth-London possible.
