Skytrans FIFO Charters and More at Thangool / Biloela Airport on Friday
Skytrans Airlines operated another two Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charters out of Thangool / Biloela Airport early on Friday 21 December.
Dash-8-300 VH-QQM operated both of the return flights from and back to Brisbane, flying as SKP7341/7342, then SKP7343/7344.

- QantasLink Dash-8-200 VH-SDE, operating the scheduled QLK2398/2399 from and back to Brisbane.
