Emirates ready for Perth landing By Geoffrey Thomas EMIRATES Airlines"first Boeing 777 flight to Perth is due to touch down at 5.25pm today, ending a five-year bid to attract the world's most awarded airline. At the controls will be Perth-born Capt. Charlie Herman. Many of the flight attendants also are from Perth. The airline will fly four times a week to Dubai with connections to the Middle-East and Europe. Getting Emirates to WA has cost the State Government $1.35 million over three years and it had to beat off a similar package from Queensland. The Government expects the service to bring 1000 visitors a week to Perth, generating $47 million a year from tourism. And there are incentives for Perth travellers to book with Emirates. The airline is running a promotion until August 7 with fares starting at $777 return to the Middle-East and $1777 to Europe and Africa. The introductory fares are valid for travel until September 18. Fares are subject to seat and class availability and conditions apply.
