Qantas Launches New Flights between Melbourne and Exmouth

Qantas Launches New Flights between Melbourne and Exmouth

Today marks the first day that Qantas will offer service between Melbourne and Exmouth. The new direct seasonal route will save Victorians who previously linked through Perth three hours of travel time.

From now through October, the national carrier will run two round-trip flights a week between Melbourne and Exmouth using Boeing 737 aircraft, offering more than 18,000 seats during the busiest travel period.

The five-hour direct trip, which will depart on a Sunday and a Thursday, will make it simple for tourists from the eastern shore to visit one of Australia’s most stunning and inaccessible regions, including the renowned Ningaloo Reef.

Exmouth is the newest addition to Qantas’ large domestic network, which currently includes 65 destinations all throughout Australia. The Qantas network will offer better domestic and international travel links, which will benefit the people of the Coral Coast.

A limited-edition amenity kit containing artwork by Western Australian Wongi Artist Kevin Wilson will be given to passengers on the inaugural flight between Melbourne and Exmouth. The kit was created in conjunction with Qantas and Tourism Western Australia.

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air has introduced its latest business class offering, the Prestige Suites 2.0, set to make its debut aboard the airline’s new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner fleet.

This new product marks a significant upgrade from the previous Collins Apex forward-facing staggered seats, known as Prestige Suites. The Prestige Suites 2.0 is designed in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, ensuring each passenger direct aisle access and ample privacy.

The seats offer 46 inches of pitch, 21 inches of width, and can be transformed into a flat bed measuring between 78.2 and 79.2 inches. A standout feature of these seats is the inclusion of privacy doors that stand 52 inches high, offering a more secluded experience even when positioned closer to the aisle.

Tech-savvy travelers will appreciate the suite’s cutting-edge features, which include a 23.8-inch ultra-high-definition entertainment monitor, 60W USB-C charging, AC power outlets, and wireless charging capabilities.

Moreover, Korean Air’s Boeing 787-10s will be the first in the fleet to offer Wi-Fi, enhancing connectivity for passengers. The new business class seats come with a range of amenities aimed at maximizing comfort and convenience. These include a storage cubby, a handheld remote, USB-C charging ports, and universal outlets.

The wireless charging pad is a notable highlight, reflecting the suite’s advanced technological integration. The layout of the Prestige Suites 2.0 comprises 10 rows of seats in a 1-2-1 arrangement, specifically rows 7-16 in the business class cabin. The cabin is flanked by lavatories and galleys at both the front and the rear, ensuring easy access for all passengers.

A striking departure from Korean Air’s traditional design, the new seats feature a bold brown color palette. This is a significant change from the airline’s iconic Morning Calm blue and bright white interiors.

The new design incorporates semi-matte deep brown side consoles with metallic tops, brushed coppery-almond cabinet doors, and textured tan interior shrouds, giving the cabin a modern and sophisticated look.
