CNN Business Traveller host Richard Quest journeys the historic Australia / UK route both ways: as it was in 1947 by making stops along the old route, and on board the new 17+ hour nonstop flight from Perth to London.
CNN Business Traveller will make this journey over two episodes and this month, in part one, the program will see host Richard Quest on board the inaugural Qantas nonstop from Perth to London. The 17+ hour trip is re-imagined, from food to the flight experience to methods which can help minimize jet lag. The ultra-long haul has evolved and CNN Business Traveller will explore why it’s not only possible now, it’s also profitable.
Simultaneously, the program will see Richard Quest don 1940s clothing and make stops along the old Kangaroo Route. An overnight in Singapore will explore the city state’s pivotal role in aviation history and a visit to India’s financial capital Mumbai provides an authentic taste of what the cosmopolitan city offers its international travellers.
