Air New Zealand's first-ever Perth Airport lounge is on the horizon.
Air New Zealand will open its first Perth Airport lounge by the end of the year.
The new lounge is part of a $100 million development program that will see facilities upgraded in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Air New Zealand general manager customer experience Anita Hawthorne says it's fitting that Perth Airport should have a lounge given the importance of our city to the airline.
"Perth was our first 787-9 Dreamliner route and our daily non-stop connection between Perth and Auckland attracts strong interest from customers travelling to New Zealand as well as on to North and South America," she says.
The airline flies from Perth to Auckland 10 times a week and has a twice weekly seasonal service to Christchurch between December and April. All flights are operated by Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
