‘Australia’s shortest and longest international flights’ now departing Darwin, with new service to Dili launched

Darwin is now home to “Australia’s shortest and longest international flights”, with the first of Qantas’s new regular passenger flights to Dili today departing the NT capital.

“Darwin-Dili is 725km and Darwin-London is about 14,000km depending on the route flown,” Darwin-based aviation analyst Bruce Dale said.

Passengers on the new Darwin to Dili service can expect their journey to take about one hour and 20 minutes whereas travelers departing Darwin for London can expect a travel time of longer than 17 hours.

Qantas will continue to run direct daily flights between Darwin and London until at least the end of June.

But Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said in February it was unlikely the route would continue to depart the NT capital after WA reopened its borders.
