A couple of busy days for Alliance Airlines Fokker jets this week, operating various Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flights, as well as flights seemingly on behalf of QantasLink.
During the afternoon and evening on Thursday 20 November, Fokker F-70 VH-JFE operated two return flights from Brisbane to Emerald for QantasLink as UTY2636/2637/2638/2639.
Also spotted at Emerald Airport late on Thursday was Fokker F-100 VH-XWR which called in briefly while operating a FIFO charter flight from Trepell to Brisbane as UTY881. After the presumably unscheduled stop at Emerald, it continued to Brisbane as UTY881D.
VH-XWR has had a busy week, also calling into Emerald late on Wednesday 19 November, flying in from Cloncurry as UTY5713, before departing on to Brisbane as UTY713. While on Tuesday 18 November, VH-XWR was noted flying into Mackay Airport on behalf of QantasLink on a return flight from Brisbane as UTY2666/2667.
Finally, also on Wednesday 19 November, Fokker F-70 VH-JFB operated the weekly FIFO charter flight from Brisbane to Emerald and back as UTY1070/1071.
