Qantas will confirm non-stop flights from London to Australia TOMORROW

QANTAS will confirm plans for non-stop London to Australia TOMORROW with a blockbuster order for new jets to operate the ultra-long haul.

The airline has been working on what it calls “Project Sunrise” for almost five years, planning record-breaking flights of more than 20 hours from Sydney to London and from Sydney to New York.

An order for up to a dozen Airbus A350-1000s is due to be confirmed at Sydney Airport on Monday morning.

Qantas had intends to launch its Sunrise flights by 2023 but the Covid pandemic has put the project on hold.

An Airbus-owned A350 was en route from the aircraft manufacturer’s base in Toulouse, France, and was scheduled to land there perth just before 7 p.m. local time, according to tracking site FlightRadar24.

Industry sources confirmed that Monday’s announcement would also include the completion of Qantas’ domestic fleet renewal, which includes an order for up to 134 Airbus A320neo and A220 aircraft over the next decade.

The A220 is not currently used by any local airlines.

But an airBaltic A220 – which does not normally fly to Australia – landed at Sydney Airport on Saturday night, FlightRadar24 shows.

On Friday, Qantas sent journalists a media alert regarding a “significant announcement” at Sydney Airport on Monday.

The announcement is intended to confirm the major order from Airbus.

A spokesman for the airline declined to comment on Sunday.

Qantas confirmed it had selected the A350 for its Project Sunrise flights that same year and said last December it had also selected Airbus to renew its aging domestic fleet.

The Airbus order is a major blow to American manufacturer Boeing, whose 737s are the current backbone of the airline’s domestic operations.

It had also deployed its new 777X for record-breaking non-stop flights to London and New York.
