New Arrivals at Central Queensland Airports This Week

Two new aircraft that have recently entered service with Alliance Airlines and Skytrans Airlines have been noted passing through some CQ Airports over the last week.

Fokker F-100 VH-XWR has entered service out of Brisbane with Alliance Airlines and was noted operating to Mackay and Rockhampton Airports on Monday 8 August, and then on Thursday 11 August, VH-XWR flew to Emerald Airport on a Fly-In Fly-Out (FIFO) charter.

Skytrans Airlines recently acquired Dash-8-311 was noted positioning into Brisbane from Cairns late last week, and this week, began operating on Skytrans' FIFO charter flights to Emerald Airport. VH-QQM was noted flying to Emerald Airport on Monday 8 August. It then positioned to Rockhampton Airport, before returning to Emerald Airport early on Tuesday 9 August, before flying back to Brisbane.

Incidentally, Virgin Australia Boeing B737-800 VH-YVA, which is still a reasonably new aircraft, made it first visit to Mackay Airport last Thursday 4 August.
