The 14,498 kilometre service will be the first regular passenger service to directly link Australia with Europe when it begins in March 2018.
Seats on the Perth-London flights will go on sale in April 2017 for the first services in March 2018, which will operate using the 787-9 Dreamliner
Commenting on the new route, Alan Joyce, CEO of the Quantas Group said: "A direct flight makes travelling to Australia a much more attractive proposition to millions of people. We expect many travellers from Europe will start their time in Australia with a visit to Perth before going on to see other parts of the country.
