Air­line boosts Perth ser­vice

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

PERTH Air­port has wel­comed Eti­had Air­ways’ first sched­uled ser­vice with its up­graded Boe­ing 787900 Dream­liner from Abu Dhabi.

“We are de­lighted that Eti­had has cho­sen to up­grade its air­craft on the Perth route,” Perth Air­port act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Vic­tor Howard said.

“Cus­tomers can now travel with Eti­had be­tween Perth and Abu Dhabi in one of the world’s qui­etest and most in­no­va­tive air­craft.”

The Dream­liner daily ser­vice will re­place the Air­bus A330-200 and de­liv­ers a 14 per cent in­crease in ca­pac­ity. Eti­had se­nior vi­cepres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing Shane O’Hare said the ad­di­tional weekly seats to Perth would bol­ster Eti­had Air­ways’ ex­ist­ing sup­port for tourism.

“We will bring more vis­i­tors from across our global net­work to ex­pe­ri­ence the de­lights of a Western Aus­tralian hol­i­day,” he said.

Eti­had will be the fifth air­line to op­er­ate the Boe­ing 787-900 to Perth, along­side Air New Zealand, China South­ern Air­lines, Scoot and Thai Air­ways.
