Topic: Air Services—Schedule Change for Saturday Passenger Flights commencing April 2017

Commencing 1 April 2017 the Saturday passenger flight to the Indian Ocean Territories will depart from Perth Airport at 07:35 local time.

The change is due to the new allocation of departure times issued by Perth Airport.

Perth Airport goes through a review of departure times every 6 months to re-evaluate the efficient use of Perth Airport for international and domestic air traffic. This review occurs for the periods April-September and October-March every year.

Perth Airport's allocated departure times are final and carriers are required to amend their schedules accordingly.
