Video Podcast: Flying Kangaroo plays it safe on Perth–London route

written by Robyn Tongol | April 17, 2024

With tensions flaring between Israel and Iran, Qantas has paused its non-stop Perth–London services, adding a new stop in Singapore on the northbound journey.

Given the difficulties of avoiding Iranian airspace between Perth and London while staying within the safe range of a 787-9 Dreamliner, is the Flying Kangaroo hurting for the lack of its new A350-1000 fleet?

Adam and Jake look at the implications for Qantas, including its future services from Perth to Rome and Paris.

Plus, a big week for airport infrastructure aficionados, with builds at Western Sydney, Melbourne and Newcastle all getting a turn in the spotlight.
