Qantas to launch nonstop Perth flights to Johannesburg and Jakarta

Perth is finally on Qantas’ long-range radar after years of neglect with two new nonstop international services to Johannesburg and Jakarta to be confirmed this morning.

Just four years ago the Flying Kangaroo’s only regular international route from Perth was to Singapore with Auckland a seasonal service. Perth-to-London started in 2018 and was immediately the airline’s most popular and profitable international route.

Tomorrow the Perth-Rome nonstop service is formally launched, with flights to Johannesburg three times weekly from November 1 and Jakarta also three times weekly from November 30.

WA is now cemented as a major Australian gateway for Qantas with more route announcements expected with Paris on the radar.
