Perth saw its hottest year to date during 2011, according to official figures.

People in search of some warm weather on holiday could be planning to take flights to Perth as the city saw its hottest year on record during 2011.

The Weather Bureau stated that the average temperature over the year was 25.7 degrees C, a rise on the 25.3 degrees C that was the average take during the previous year.

Prior to the last two years, the hottest year recorded by the weather body in 1978, when the average temperature was found to be 25.2 degrees C.

Duty forecaster with the Weather Bureau Rabi Rivett explained Perth also had a record number of hot days, with 76 days during the year seeing the temperature increase to 32 degrees C or above.

People taking flights to Perth and other locations in Australia with Virgin Australia could soon be doing their bit to help the planet, as the carrier is lending its support to the development of aviation biofuel.
