Emirates has added an A380 aircraft on its service to Perth.
Perth becomes the fourth Australian city to welcome a regular Emirates A380 service.
“The fact we now offer A380 services into four Australian cities is a testament to the strong global demand for travel into Australia, a premier tourist location and key destination on our global network,” said Barry Brown, Emirates divisional senior VP, commercial operations east.
Emirates is also investing into the West Australian market with an expanded lounge at Perth Airport. Set to open later this year, the lounge will offer increased capacity in order to cater for the passenger numbers that will be travelling on the A380.
The A380 to Perth offers 401 economy seats, 76 in business class and 14 First class private suites.
Last month, Emirates said it plans to continue its partnership with Qantas beyond the initial five-year agreement.
