PERTH Airport has completed the first Multi Access Ramp System (MARS) boarding gate at the international terminal, almost a year overdue.
The first flight to use the gate was EK422 from Dubai, a Boeing 777-300ER on Monday. The gate had problems at first with the manoeuvring into position of one of the dual aero bridges.
It is now anticipated that Emirates will soon announce flights on their Airbus A380 from Perth in March.
