The airline Qantas Airways is seriously considering the launch of a new route, from London to Sydney direct and refueling, to the 2020th year. This will record a single flight for a passenger aircraft more than 20 hours, but it promises huge benefits. Finally resolved the issue of access to all parts of the world in one trip – that’s just the right plane for the job yet.
Traditional suppliers for the fleet of Qantas Airways, American Boeing and European Airbus has already been informally involved in the work on creation of the airliner. We are talking about promising models of Boeing 777X and Airbus A350ULR that can fly in the sky in the next few years.
A key requirement for the future aircraft: the ability to fly with a full load, passengers, baggage and fuel, at least 17 thousand kilometers. Without landing, refueling and maintenance, plus maintaining comfortable conditions for people on Board – I only need the power and the load on the toilets with such a long flight! The existing limit for passenger aircraft, subject to all the rules of safety, for a thousand km less.
Qantas Airways offers aircraft manufacturers, no less, to make a technological revolution to move from the large aircraft for long-haul flights to the machines that will be run through the whole world. The challenge and adopted the largest adiposities planet.
