Yes they did. Both parties were committed to the Ellenbrook line, with a starting construction date of 2012 and completion by 2015 ..

Meanwhile, the Liberals today promised to match Labor's promise to build the Ellenbrook line by 2015. Liberal leader Colin Barnett called it "the next logical extension" of the rail network

I cant see the airport line being a priority IMO its still not viable, not until both terminals merge, the commercial devleopments are completed, and some time ahs passed for passenger numbers to reach around 12 million, for now a system like melbournes skybus would be fine, while we concentrate on the ellenbrook line, buying more railway cars, and expanding the carparking at stations and bus links

the planning can always progress tho.

in my opinion, it should be in place and open at the same time the majority of the major terminal reconfig comes online.

so they really need to start the planning and approvals process right now.

They cant build an airport terminal and then properly integrate a rail terminal later. It needs to be allowed for right from the beginning....especially if it is fully or partially underground through the terminal grounds.

Some good news at last from the West:

Virgin Blue to open Perth to Bali routes

19th September 2008, 12:15 WST

Virgin Blue will begin direct flights from Perth to Bali in December, just in time for the peak Christmas holiday period.

The carrier will operate four direct flights from Perth each week and the flights mark the first time Virgin Blue Group has operated direct international flights from Perth.

Subject to regulatory approval, Pacific Blue will also fly from Brisbane and Adelaide, making a total of 11 direct flights between Australian and Indonesia each week.

“Venturing into a brand new market is tremendously exciting to out group of airlines, particularly given the new flights will be our first foray into Asia,” Virgin Blue chief executive Brett Godfrey said.

“It will bring increased competition and a high quality, affordable and importantly, a direct flying option between these three Australian cities and Bali.”

To celebrate the flights to Denpasar, the gateway to Bali, the Gnarly Bail sale fare has been launched with Perth fares from $199 one way.

Might be a little late for work that morning Will be interesting to see where they park it. International side you'd think.....she'll just get in the way on the Domestic apron, that area is crowded enough without an A380 sitting there.

can this thing dock at the usual aprons, or will it have to have stairs ferried to it?

i thought there were runway modifications needed to allow it to land, were those made already?

The A380 has been certified to be able to operate out of any runway capable of handling the B747-400 (ie Perth included). Some changes have to be made to certain taxiways though because of the position of the outboard engines and the larger landing gear wheelbase.

No gates at Perth are fully A380 compliant though im sure they could dock it with a single front lower-deck door being used. This wont be the case for this promotional flight though....theyll be parking at bays 60/61 which are the remote stands.
