Qantas will significantly boost its international network from Perth with flights to Johannesburg and Jakarta set to take off later this year.
The routes are the latest of eight new international services the national carrier has announced since Australia’s international borders re-opened in November 2021.
Both routes are being supported by the Western Australian Government’s Reconnect WA package and Qantas will work with Tourism Western Australia to boost inbound tourism from both South Africa and Indonesia into Perth and regional WA, and with the cooperation of Perth Airport.
The addition of Johannesburg and Jakarta will mean Qantas will operate international flights from Perth to five destinations including London, Rome, and Singapore.
Fares for Perth-Johannesburg flights go on sale today starting from $1800 return. Fares for Perth-Jakarta go on sale today from $870 return.
Since borders have reopened, Qantas has now announced eight new international routes, including Perth to Rome, Darwin to Dili, Sydney to Seoul and Bengaluru, and Melbourne to Delhi and Dallas.
Flights are subject to government and regulatory approval.
