Qantas First Class Suite For Project Sunrise Debuts

Qantas debuts their Qantas First Class Suites for Project Sunrise

Introducing Project Sunrise Qantas First Class Suite and Business Class Lie Flat Seats

This information is compliments of Qantas

After conducting some test a few years ago for Project Sunrise (Australia to London non-stop flights), Qantas officially selected the Airbus A350 airplanes and will use 12 of them for the service. On February 23, 2023, they announced the cabin layouts of the First Class Suite (lie flat seat)as well as the Business Class cabin. Let’s take a look.

What is Project Sunrise?

From Qantas

In 2017, Qantas announced plans to take on the final frontier of aviation: direct (sic) non-stop flights from the east coast of Australia to Europe and New York. We challenged Boeing and Airbus to deliver an aircraft capable of ultra long-haul flying, which would revolutionise Australian air travel and codenamed Project Sunrise for our long history of endurance flying.

The Airbus A350-1000 was chosen as the preferred aircraft, and 12 aircraft were ordered in May 2022. Project Sunrise will deliver more direct routes to Australia, significantly reduced point-to-point travel time (up to 4 hours compared with 1-stop flights) and a flying experience second to none – with a cabin interior and service design influenced by medical and scientific research carried out on research flights.

The inaugural flights are scheduled for take-off in late 2025, starting with Sydney to London and New York.

Here is a video from Qantas explaining the Business and First Class Suites concept.
