Confused about flight times

Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Confused about flight times

Just about to book a hostel for when we arrive in Perth on the 16th June but confused as to what time we get there.

We leave Manchester on 14th June at 17:20 and get to London at 18:15. We leave there at 20:25 and get to Singapore at 16:15 on the 15th June. We then have a fairly long wait to 23:30 when we leave there and arrive in Perth at 04:40 on the morning of 16th June.

Does this mean that it is 4:40am Australia time or our time? If Australia time would it mean I would have to book a hostel for the 15th June so that I could check in during the night? Also, what sort of transport is available at that time in the morning from the airport? I don't suppose shuttle buses run at that time :(

Many thanks for your help.

Flight times are always stated in local times, so it will be 4.40am Perth time. You'd probably have to pay a full night's accommodation for that night (ie the previous night) in Perth if you wanted to check in that early in the morning. Just make sure that the hostel has 24 hour check in.

Also, 4:40 is the landing time, so by the time you have gotten off the plane, collected you luggage and cleared customs, etc, etc, you probably won't have to wait long until the shuttles or buses have started running if there is none there at that time.
