With its large ex-Italian population and shorter flight time to other possible European mainland destinations it was little surprising that Rome was chosen as the first non-stop first foray by Qantas into the EU.

The total scheduled flight time is 22hr50min, made up of 5hr Sydney (SYD) – Perth (PER), a 80min stopover, and the long leg to Rome (FCO) 16.5hr. It can be quicker depending on winds – on the inaugural it took just 15.5hr PER – FCO. About the same each way. Boeing Dreamliner 787-9’s currently operate the service with 42 Business, 28 Premium economy and 166 Economy seats.

Passport control is in Sydney if that is where you start or finish, or in Perth for any other journeys.

Days are Saturday, Monday and Wednesday. It runs until 6 October this year and restarts in June 2023.

According to reports it is a taste of Italy through and through, something to whet your appetite on the outward-bound leg or savour on the return.
