Qantas has announced services to Rome directly from Australia, after 20 years since their exit from the eternal city. The airline will operate a thrice weekly seasonal service from Sydney via Perth beginning 22 June, through to 6 October. The flight will operate using the Boeing 787-9 Dream(liner.
Rome was selected as demand for Qantas’ Kangaroo Route took off, as Aussies look to make up for lost time during border closures. It also comes after new flights from Sydney and Melbourne to Delhi, and the restart of flights to Los Angeles, London and Singapore.
Qantas will also offer connections to 16 destinations throughout Europe including Madrid, Athens, Frankfurt and Nice, as well as 15 destinations within Italy including Venice and Milan. These flights will be operated by partners: Iberia, British Airways and Ita, among others.
This is super exciting news for Australia, as Aussies look forward to new holiday destinations throughout Europe, with Qantas expected to continue expansion plans into key cities on the continent.
