Exclusive interview with Qantas CEO scheduled for release at CAPA-ACTE 2017 Perth - July 4th

29 June, 2017

The CAPA-ACTE 2017 Perth Aviation & Corporate Travel Summit, scheduled for 4 July, at the Mercure Hotel, will include the release of an exclusive video interview with Qantas CEO Alan Joyce.

Qantas’ planned Perth-London non-stop service begins in Mar-2018, the first time Australia has been linked directly by air to Europe. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce believes the record breaking service has already generated AUD90million in marketing. But it also is a game changer, both for Qantas and for Perth as it opens up the prospect of a “western hub” to complement Sydney’s eastern hub role. And it can be transformational for West Australian tourism and corporate activity.

It’s not too late to register for the Perth Summit and be there in person and hear from Alan and our highly sort after speakers, click here.

Guest will witness presentations with in-depth data, have access to specifically designed white papers and receive the latest trends and updates direct from a variety of subject matter experts, as well as aviation and hotel specialists.

  • Aviation Air Ticket Data Trends–Local Perth Update;
