B717-200 VH-NXH had the honour of operating the QJE1700/1 service arriving from and later departing back to Brisbane.
The arrival of the 110-seat two-class or 125-seat all economy aircraft comes as a replacement to QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 flights to Proserpine Airport also from the capital which commenced in September last year.
It is believed that the upgrade of equipment will be on a daily basis.
All the best for this new route - and even more reasons to visit the beautiful Whitsundays region!
