Qantas sells flight to nowhere

Qantas, the airline of Australia, has announced a special ‘Trip to Nowhere’ flight.

The new flight that would see the plane take off from Sydney, fly for 7 hours, and then land back in Sydney.

The trip costs passengers $864NZD.

Qantas has announced that it is one of the fastest-selling flights they’ve ever put on.

Passengers have been promised great views of Australian icons like the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru, which are off limits to many people due to border closures.

There’s no need for baggage on the seven-hour flight with no stopovers, but passengers have been told they’ll also see Kata Tjuta, Byron Bay, Bondi Beach and Sydney Harbour.

Qantas says the plane will fly as low as 1300 metres at some parts of the flight to get passengers as close as possible to these landmarks.
