Last week, Qatar Airways announced that they will be servicing Perth passengers with their latest A380 fleet. A monumental decision that means Perth will now be graced with the largest passenger plane on the planet. The A380 service to Doha will be configured with 8 first, 48 business and 461 economy seats for a total of 517 seats, representing a 44 percent lift in capacity for Qatar Airways to Perth.
The rise in seating capacity will mean that there are more opportunities to experience business and first class and with Europe being even more accessible with perfect connections through to key European cities such as Paris and London, now is the perfect time to secure a spot onboard. The best part? Economy passengers will receive an extra 2cm in legroom and almost 4cm more seat width.
Perth Airport CEO Kevin Brown says Qatar’s decision to use the new generation A380 will see its capacity surge by almost 45 percent.
“This decision is more great news for Perth Airport and for the local tourism industry,” Mr Brown said.”
“From May of next year, this will add almost 109,000 additional seats to the route with more than 7,000 passengers travelling between Doha and Perth every week.”
“This is an extraordinary opportunity to bring more international tourists to our capital city and our State.”
With the arrival of the new fleet, we are proud to announce that we have partnered with Qatar Airways to be the official transport partner, transporting the cabin crew in style to and from their hotels across Perth. We’ll be on board to make sure their crew arrive at the airport on time to prepare the plane for departure.
