AIR New Zealand have brought forward the operation of their flagship Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the Auckland – Perth route to the 12th of September.
Ship “ZK-NZE” operated NZ175 arriving early onto Perth’s runway 24 at 5:20pm. This marks the first visit of this aircraft type to Perth which is the new stretched version of its sister, the Boeing 787-8.
The services by the B787-9 are not guaranteed to operate each service with the schedules being updated daily to reflect aircraft availability. They will be guaranteed however from 15 October.
Perth is the sixth Australian city to receive regular 787 services.
