Qatar Airways will fly its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft to Perth from 1 May, 2018, in what the Gulf carrier and Qantas partner describes as a further sign of its commitment to the Australian market.
The superjumbo will replace the Boeing 777-300ER currently flying on the Perth-Doha route and more importantly, bring with it the option of flying in Qatar's first class suites...
... and for business class passengers, the opportunity to relax in what we rate as the world's best inflight lounge.
Qatar Airways' superjumbo also boasts spacious and well-appointed business class seats.
The Perth-Doha flights also dovetail into Qatar's Airbus A380 services to London and Paris, although passengers may want to look for one of the newer Boeing 777 jets boasting the airline's impressive Qsuite business class.
Qatar also plans to begin flights to Canberra via Sydney from 12 February, 2018.
