CAPA Insights 09 Feb 18

CAPA Centre for Aviation today offers its latest exclusive infographic, presenting insight from its own data and external sources. QANTAS announced recently it would base six of its Boeing 787-9 at Brisbane International Airport, making this the official hub of the airline’s new aircraft. From 01 Sep 2018, Qantas will utilise the equipment for services from Brisbane to Los Angeles and onto New York JFK. The 787-9’s will equate to 56% of seats on the route however as the aircraft are much smaller than the current 747’s on the route, even with increasing frequencies Brisbane only stands to gain a capacity increase of 2.2%. These aren’t the first of this aircraft type to service Brisbane, with Etihad already available and Air Canada launching in Mar 2018. The post CAPA Insights 09 Feb 18 appeared first on Travel Daily.
