X Factor star wows WTM - see photos


X Factor judge Dannii Minogue attracted the crowds at this year's World Travel Market when she helped Etihad Airways launch its new route to her home town of Melbourne.

The Formula 1 enthusiast signed autographs and posed for pictures on the airline's stand alongside a Ferrari F1 car. Etihad is a main sponsor of the F1 racing team.

Clive Wratten, Etihad Airways UK Country Manager, said: "Melbourne is Dannii's home town and we'll be delighted to fly her home on our daily flights. The forthcoming launch of the route to the Australian city is really important to us and Dannii helped us to celebrate with style."

Etihad will operate daily services to Melbourne from March 2009 from London Heathrow and Manchester airports, with connections through Abu Dhabi.
