Perth Airport will receive its fourth Boeing 787 operator in April when China Southern deploys the Dreamliner on its thrice-weekly service from the airline’s Guangzhou hub.
China Southern said on Thursday it would replace the Airbus A330-200 currently being used on the route with a 787-8 configured with four first, 24 business and 200 economy class seats from April 1.
Meanwhile, the Skyteam alliance member was scheduled to move its Guangzhou-Melbourne flights to double daily from July 1, from 10 times a week currently. And the airline’s Guangzhou-Brisbane service was slated to add an extra two flights a week to become a daily offering after June 23.
