From July 12, 2024, Qantas will begin direct flights between Paris and Australia
Australia’s national airline, Qantas, announced on October 28 that it will operate non-stop flights between France and Australia, establishing the first direct flight between the two countries.
From 12 July 2024, Qantas will launch direct flights between Paris and Perth, the capital of Western Australia. Operated by the company’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the route will initially operate four days a week during peak summer in Europe. Services will increase to three days a week from mid-August 2024.
In addition, passengers will have the ability to easily connect to Qantas’ extensive domestic network of more than 65 destinations across Australia, including Sydney and Melbourne and New Zealand.
The Paris-Perth route will be the company’s third direct route between Europe and Australia and follows the success of its flights from London and Rome. On this new year-round route, Qantas will serve the French capital for the first time in nearly two decades, shaving more than two hours off the fastest journey time between Paris and Perth.
Qantas Group CEO Vanessa Hudson said the airline was excited about the prospect of putting Paris back on the Qantas map with a direct route between France and Australia for the first time.
“This joint has been on our wish list for a long time and we think customers will be delighted to see it go on sale today,” said Vanessa Hudson.
“Our direct flights from London and Rome are the most popular and Paris is the second most popular destination.
“Some of the first passengers on these flights will be Australian athletes traveling to Paris to compete in the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
For more than 100 years, Qantas has set the standards for high-quality travel. Offering more space and fewer seats than most of our competitors, the cabins and service on our 787 aircraft are specially designed with long-haul travel in mind.”
