Cathay Pacific Adds Capacity on Perth Route
Cathay Pacific has added capacity to its daily Perth service,
upgrading the aircraft used on the route to Airbus A350-1000
aircraft over the Northern Winter 2019/20.
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.”

(flat-bed) seats, 32 Premium Economy Class and 256 Economy Class
