QANTAS Airways (Sydney) has announced it will deploy wide-body Airbus A330s on all weekday Sydney-Perth and Melbourne-Perth services as it continues to meet demand for business and premium travel on the routes.
QANTAS has added a ninth A330 flying on the domestic network. Airbus A330-202 VH-EBV (msn 1365) was accepted on November 23.
The airline has 30 wide-body aircraft operating on domestic routes in Australia, made up of Airbus A330s and Boeing 767-300s.
The new QANTAS A330-202 is configured with 36 seats in Business and 268 seats in Economy. Airbus has installed the latest Panasonic on-demand in-flight entertainment and laptop power in every seat.
By March, QANTAS will have refurbished 16 Boeing 767-300 aircraft with new interiors and individual inflight entertainment streamed direct to iPads in every seat.
In the past 12 months QANTAS has resumed services from Sydney to the Gold Coast, built new lounges at Gold Coast, Gladstone, Mackay, Emerald, Davenport and Rockhampton airport, commenced services to a number of new regional and Fly-In-Fly-Out destinations and introduced a number of new initiatives to improve customer experiences including free Wi-Fi at airports and dedicated premium boarding.
