Qatar Airways to increase seat capacity on Perth route

Posted 4 August 2014 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways will be increasing the capacity on its Perth route with an aircraft upgrade to a Boeing 777-300. The increase in capacity will go into effect on 1st October of this year.


The Perth route, which has seen exceptional growth over the last two years, provides excellent connections for passengers to the airline’s numerous destinations in the Middle East and Africa as well as 33 destinations in Europe, through the airline's new state-of-the-art home, Hamad International Airport, in Doha, Qatar.

The capacity increase from a Boeing 777-200 to a 777-300 will bring a 30% increase in seats on the direct daily flights to Perth Airport, with the number of seats rising by 1,064 per week.

Along with the increase in capacity, the airline is also celebrating its two-year anniversary since the launch of its direct flights to Perth, the capital of Western Australia. Perth, first launched in July 2012, became the second Australian destination for the airline, joining Melbourne which was launched in 2009.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive officer, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways was very pleased to be able to expand our operations in Australia by adding Perth to our network of destinations just two years ago. It has proven to be a very sound move as we have had great success with the route. And now, just two years later, we are already increasing our capacity to meet the needs of our Australian passengers who are extremely keen and avid travellers, with a great sense of adventure. We are very pleased that they continually choose to fly with us and have the opportunity to enhance their overall travel experience with our five-star service and product.”
