Qantas will begin non-stop flights from Perth to Paris in July 2024, just in time for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
The flight itself will run from Sydney to Paris, with a stop in Perth. This follows a similar pattern to the flights to Rome and London which start off from either Sydney or Melbourne.
To begin with, the flight will operate 4 days a week, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. In mid-August, once the peak European summer (and Olympics) is over, this will dial back to three days a week. At that point, the Sunday flight will no longer operate.
Qantas Group CEO Vanessa Hudson said the airline was thrilled to put Paris back on the Qantas map with a direct link for Australians to the French capital for the first time.
“This route has been on our wish list for a while and we think customers will be as pleased as we are to see it go on sale today,” Ms Hudson said.
“Our direct flights to London and Rome have been hugely popular and Paris is the next most-requested destination, so we know the demand for this service will be strong as well.
The Flight Schedule
Qantas flight QF33 leaves Sydney in the afternoon. It then stops off in Perth in the late afternoon, before an early evening departure to Paris. It then arrives in Paris bright and early the next morning.
The schedule will be as follows:
- QF33 Sydney 13:55 – Perth 17:00
- QF33 Perth 19:35 – Paris 06:55 (+1 day)
The return schedule reverses the journey, heading back to Sydney, via Perth. The schedule is
- QF34 Paris 09:55 – Perth 08:30 (+1 day)
- QF34 Perth 10:00 – Sydney 16:05
As with the Perth to London and Perth to Rome flights, Qantas will use the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. These aircraft are in a three-cabin configuration, namely Economy, Premium Economy, and Business. Unfortunately, they do not have a First cabin.
Fares have gone on sale, and until 2 November will be available at prices starting from $1,899.
