QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOD Now in New Colours Calls into Hamilton Island Airport

After emerging from the paint-shop on Saturday 10 February, QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOD made its first visit into Central Queensland wearing its new colours on Tuesday 13 February when it operated into Hamilton Island Airport on the QLK2503/2504 service from and back to Cairns.

It is believed that VH-QOD has retained its original name of "Emerald".

VH-QOD is the fourth QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 that has been re-painted into the new Qantas livery at the Flying Colours facility at Townsville Airport.  It joins VH-QOA, VH-QOB and VH-QOC (pictured above) in the new and updated Qantas livery and kangaroo logo, which was introduced to coincide with the introduction the Boeing B787 Dreamliner into service with the airline late last year.

I believe that Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOE has now entered the paint-shop at Townsville with sister-ship VH-QOF now the final QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 to wear the very old 1984-style Qantas livery.
