Emirates to return to a double-daily service
The second daily service will be operated by the airline’s B777-300ER aircraft in addition to Emirates’ A380 daily service.
The following should be attributed to Acting Tourism Minister John Carey:
“Today's announcement represents another important step forward in rebuilding WA’s aviation capacity and further strengthens Perth’s global reputation as the Western Gateway to Australia.
"Securing additional direct aviation services is absolutely vital to driving more travellers to our state, injecting visitor spend into our economy, and creating jobs in the tourism and hospitality industries.
“We’re really proud to have brought back or secured new non-stop flights to 19 global cities since borders reopened, and this is just another vote of confidence in Western Australia as a tourism destination.”
The following should be attributed to Perth Airport’s Chief Operating Officer Scott Woodward
“The re-introduction of Emirates’ second daily service is great news as it will add significant capacity into the Perth market.
“Emirates is an important airline partner for Western Australia and this additional daily service delivers an impressive 250,000 seats per year on this very popular route.
“The Emirates network is extensive and links to more than 140 destinations world-wide which is great news for West Australian travellers, particularly those travelling through Dubai to the UK and Europe.
“Over the past two years we’ve worked with the State Government, via Tourism Western Australia to build Perth’s profile and reputation in the international aviation market, and it is paying dividends.
“Not only does the new service mean that there are more options for business and leisure travel, but the increased capacity will lead to many more international visitors coming to Western Australia.
“The return of this second daily service shows the commitment and confidence that Emirates has in the Western Australian market, and we will be working with the airline to ensure this second service is as popular as its current one.”
EK424 will arrive in Perth at 00:05 and EK425 will depart for Dubai at 06:00 daily from 1 December 2024.
