Direct flights from Australia to Europe are almost here and we're already packed

Au Revoir, stopovers!

Finally, we're that little bit closer to Europe with Qantas' announcement of direct flights to and from Perth.

Until now, it hasn't been possible to fly to London without at least one grueling stopover in either Asia or the Middle East, so it's safe to say, we're pretty chuffed about this news.

Unfortunately, we have to hold out a little longer for our Euro vacay, as the new flights aren't available until March 2018.

On the bright side, that's a year to save for and plan an epic European getaway.

The new flight is Australia's first direct link to Europe, but at 17 hours, you'll definitely need to have a Netflix series or two downloaded and at the ready.
