The A350-1000 (334 seats) has replaced the A350-900 (280 seats) on the airline’s daily CX170/171 service, adding 108 additional seats per day.

Perth Airport Chief Corporate Services Officer Debra Blaskett said, “Last year, visitor arrivals from Hong Kong were up 4.6 per cent and more than 80,000 passengers travelled on the route. Those visitors from Hong Kong injected $97 million into the Western Australian economy last year. This upgrade will help to ensure these figures keep rising thanks to the high level of comfort enjoyed on the A350-1000.”

The aircraft features 46 Business Class (flat-bed) seats, 32 Premium Economy Class and 256 Economy Class seats.
