    Qantas and the Western Australia Government announced (10-Apr-2019) the launch of lower weekend Perth-Exmouth fares to boost tourism during the peak season from 07-Jun-2019 to 30-Sep-2019. Boeing 717 equipment will replace the carrier’s current Fokker F100 aircraft, increasing capacity by 25 seats. Qantas Domestic CEO Andrew David stated: “We’re investing in this trial to stimulate growth in the market, and we’ll be working closely with the West Australian Government and tourism operators to promote these new fares and additional seats to ensure it’s a success”. Qantas will undertake a review to analyse the fare’s uptake and effectiveness.
