Etihad (IATA code: EY / ICAO code: ETD)Etihad Airways logo

Etihad Airways is the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, being established by a Royal (Amiri) Decree in July 2003, and commencing operations in November 2003. “Etihad” is the Arabic word for “union”. The airline’s hub is at Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

Etihad owns 20% (soon to be 21.2%) of Virgin Australia and the two airlines have a partnership arrangement.

After a number of years of considering Perth services, Etihad finally announced on 13 December 2013 that services between Abu Dhabi and Perth would commence from 15 July 2014, using Airbus A330-200 aircraft. The inaugural service was operated by A340-600 A6-EHH as a one-off, but subsequent services have been operated by A330-200.

From 1 June 2016, services will be operated by two-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.

Schedule (correct as at 7 Aug 2016):

Garuda commenced services to Perth in December 1979 using McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 aircraft. Over the years they have used the DC-10-30, Boeing 747-200B, Airbus A300B4-600, A300B4-220, and A330, and MD-11. From around May 2001 they began using the Boeing 737-400. From March 2006, they used the 737-800, and this gradually replace the 737-400 on all Perth services.

Jetstar Asia logoJetstar Asia (IATA Code: 3K)

Jetstar Asia was formed in Singapore during 2004, and in 2005 it acquired and merged with Singapore-based Valuair. Valuair had previously commenced services between Singapore and Perth using A320s – their first service was operated by A320 9V-VLA on 1 December 2004.  The last Valuair scheduled service was on October 2005.

Jetstar commenced flights on the Perth – Singapore route in December 2008, initially using Australian-registered Jetstar Australia (JQ) A320 aircraft and later switching to Singapore-registered Jetstar Asia (3K) A320s. Perth/Jakarta flights were later operated on Mondays and Fridays, but Jetstar (Australia) has since taken over that route. The airline also operates VH- registered A330-202s of Jetstar Airways (Australia), however these are not operated to WA.

Jetstar Asia uses Airbus A320 aircraft (registered in Singapore) between Perth / Singapore.

Malaysia Airlines logoMalaysia Airlines (IATA code: MH)

In 1965, Singapore separated from the Federation of Malaysia, so in 1966 Malaysian Airlines was renamed Malaysia-Singapore Airlines (MSA). Rapid expansion followed from 1967 with new routes being established – in April 1967, MSA commenced services to Perth using the De Havilland Comet 4, following an initial route-proving flight on 7 March 1967 by 9V-BAS. Boeing 707-320s were acquired and used on Perth services from 1969. In 1972, political differences between Singapore (which wanted to develop long-haul international routes) and Malaysia (which wanted to build domestic routes first) caused Malaysia-Singapore Airlines to be split, forming Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airlines System (MAS).

Malaysian Airline System flew its first service in its own right from Kuala Lumpur to Perth in October 1976 using a Boeing 707-320, but mainly operated the DC-10-30 to Perth from December 1976. Airbus A300B4-203, Boeing 747-200, -300 and -400, and MD-11 aircraft were also used.  From 17 April 1995, Airbus A330-300 aircraft began to take over the route, with the last Malaysia Airlines DC-10-30 operating the service on 17 Sep 1995. On 9 June 1997, the airline began using the Boeing 777-200ER on the route, with the A330-300 operating a morning service (MH126/MH127) to Kuala Lumpur via Kuching, and the 777-200ER operating direct to Kuala Lumpur in the afternoon. Boeing 747-400s were also used during the summer schedule. Cargo flights by MASKargo and other airlines such as Atlas Air have also operated into Perth quite frequently.

From 15-16 Jan 2011, Malaysia Airlines began a new MH121/MH120 service between Perth and Kota Kinabalu, using 737-800s, with 9M-MXB operating the first service. It operated TUE/THU/SUN MH121 arr 23:35 / MON/WED/FRI MH120 dep 00:40. However, during January 2012, the airline decided to de-hub Kota Kinabalu, and the service was temporarily ceased. The final service between Kota Kinabalu and Perth was operated by Boeing 737-8H6 9M-MXA – it arrived on 29 January 2012 at around 23:30, and departed on 30 January at around 00:50. The service restarted from 8 December 2012, operating once per week. From 30 October 2013, the schedule is twice weekly.

In August 2011, the airline announced changes to the Perth / Kuala Lumpur service effective from 15 February 2012, including the introduction of their new A330-323X on all Perth/Kuala Lumpur services, replacing the previous Boeing 777-2H6 ER aircraft.

Schedule updated as at 8 Aug 2016:

Malindo Air (IATA code: OD, ICAO code: MXD

The entry of Malaysia’s AirAsia into Indonesia prompted Indonesian airline Lion Air to establish Malindo (derived from Malaysia and Indonesia) in Malaysia, as a joint venture between National Aerospace and Defence Industries (NADI) (51%) of Malaysia and Lion Air of Indonesia (49%).

Malindo launched services on 22 March 2013, and now operates to all major airports in Malaysia and internationally to Indonesia, Thailand, India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Singapore. Australia will be the eighth country served by the airline.

The Malaysia-based airline Malindo has hubs at Kuala Lumpur International Airport and the old KL airport at Subang. Their fleet consists of six Boeing 737-800, six Boeing 737-900ER aircraft, with four more 737s due for delivery by the end of 2015. It also operates 11 ATR72 turboprops. Malindo is considered to be a hybrid airline, as it combines some features of premium airlines with low cost fares. Its 737s feature Wi-Fi, an in-flight entertainment system for every seat, light snacks and a free meal, seat pitches of 32 inches in economy and 45 inches for business class, and free baggage allowances.

Malindo Air announced its proposed services to Perth in early September 2015, and following regulatory approvals, confirmed that it would introduce services from Kuala Lumpur to Perth from 19 November 2015, using Boeing 737-900ER aircraft .

Schedule initially involved daily flights from 19 November 2015,with the first service operated by Boeing 737-800 9M-LNW.

Frequency increased to 11 weekly from 3 December 2015.

Qatar Airways (IATA code: QR, ICAO code QTR)

Qatar Airways operates services between Doha (Qatar) and Perth, using Boeing 777-200LR and 777-300ER aircraft.

The service initially operates three times per week from 3 July 2012, but will increase to daily from 2 December 2012.

The first service was operated on Tuesday 3 July 2012 by A7-BBI Boeing 777-2DZ LR, which was also Qatar Airways’ 100th aircraft.

From 1 February 2013, QR900/901 was supposed to switch to Boeing 787-8 aircraft, making Perth the first Australian airport to receive Boeing 787 services. However, a temporary grounding of all Boeing 787s worldwide was imposed from 16 January 2013 to 26 April 2013. Although Qatar’s 787s have reentered service, the type will not be used on Perth services.

Qatar Airways announced on 5 May 2014 that their new Airbus A350-900s would be used on Perth services from early 2015. However, this also did not occur.

Flight numbers changed from QR900/901 to QR902/903 from 26 Oct 2015.

Flight schedule (as at 9 Aug 2016):

  • DAILY Boeing 777-300ER (sometimes 777-200LR) – QR902 from Doha arrives in Perth at 18:15  / QR903 departs Perth to Doha at 23:05.

Scoot (IATA code: TZ / ICAO code: SCO)Scoot

In May 2011, Singapore Airlines announced its intention to establish a low-cost subsidiary airline for medium and long-haul routes. In November 2011, the new airline – named Scoot – was launched.

Scoot uses Boeing 777-212ER aircraft which were formerly operated by its parent company Singapore Airlines.

The airline began revenue services on 4 June 2012, flying from Singapore to Sydney.

In August 2013, Scoot was reported to be arranging to commence Perth/Singapore services. In October 2013, the airline confirmed that Perth services would start from 19 December 2013, five times per week.

The Boeing 777s were withdrawn from Perth services in 2015, being replaced with Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. However, Boeing 777-200 9V-OTC and the 787-8 Dreamliners are substituted occasionally.

Singapore Airlines (IATA code: SQ/ ICAO code: SIA)

Singapore Airlines logoIn 1965, Singapore separated from the Federation of Malaysia, so in 1966 Malaysian Airlines was renamed Malaysia-Singapore Airlines (MSA). Rapid expansion followed from 1967 with new routes being established – in April 1967, MSA commenced services to Perth using the De Havilland Comet 4, following an initial route-proving flight on 7 March 1967 by 9V-BAS. Boeing 707-320s were acquired and used on Perth services from 1969.

In 1972, political differences between Singapore (which wanted to develop long-haul international routes) and Malaysia (which wanted to build domestic routes first) caused Malaysia-Singapore Airlines to be split, forming Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airlines System (MAS). Singapore Airlines retained all of the former MSA Boeing 707s, and these were used on Perth services.

Later, Airbus A310-300, A340-300, Boeing 747-200s, -300s and -400s, Boeing 777-200ER and -300 and DC-10-30s were used. Singapore Cargo has also operated to Perth with its 747-200F and -400F freighter aircraft.

From April 2009, Singapore Airlines switched to the A330-300 on all Perth services. In 2011, the airline reintroduced the Boeing 777-200ER to some services. From June – Oct 2012, the airline also used Boeing 777-312 aircraft, three times per week. It then switched to all services being operated by 777-200ER until later reintroducing the A330-300 on SQ213/SQ226 services only, from 1 Dec 2012. It later switched to the Boeing 777-200ER on all Perth services, before adding the A330 to the SQ215/SQ214 and SQ225/SQ224 services from 27 October 2013.

South African Airways logoSouth African Airways (IATA code: SA)

South African Airways commenced operations between Johannesburg and Perth on 25 November 1957 with Douglas DC-7B aircraft, and continued to use DC-7s until 7 March 1967 when operations switched to jets, using the Boeing 707-320C. In January 1977, operations switched to the Boeing 747SP and 747-200. Operations continued until 27 October 1987 when the Australian Government withdrew landing rights due to the political situation in South Africa.

Operations restarted on 19 January 1992, again with Boeing 747SP and 747-200s, but occasionally 747-300s and -400s were used.

However, on 3 December 2003, the final SAA Boeing 747 service was flown by ZS-SAL, and from the following day, the route was flown by Airbus A340s, starting with the A340-200 (ZS-SLB). South African Airways operated three versions of A340s (-200/-300/-600) on the Perth / Johannesburg route at various times during the year. The A340-200s have since been withdrawn from the fleet.
