LONDON – A Boeing 787 Dreamliner of the Australian airline Qantas is Sunday morning, after a direct flight of more than 17 hours from Perth landed in London. It is for the aviation industry for the first time reported the company Qantas in the festive departure on Saturday night.

Qantas called the connection with England for seventy years the Kangoeroeroute. On board were more than two hundred people, including Qantas boss Alan Joyce and sixteen crew members.

The Australian minister for Tourism, Steve Ciobo, hopes that the connection to Perth “to a port of Australia” and that the direct flight more tourists to his continent attracts. A ticket from Perth to London costs about 1400 euro.
