QantasLink RPT Flights to Hamilton Island Airport Resume with Dash-8-Q400 Service from Brisbane

Interesting to note on Saturday 18 July, QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOV arrived into Hamilton Island Airport as QLK2824 from Brisbane.  This is the first Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) flights to touch down on Hamilton Island since it was 'shut down' as a result of Coronavirus Pandemic back in March.

It is believed that Island staff and permanent residents were on the flight as Hamilton Island remains shut down and is not expected to open back up to guests until August.

VH-QOV then returned to Brisbane from Hamo as QLK2825.

UPDATE!  On Monday 20 July, there was another flights into Hamilton Island Airport with fellow QantasLink Dash-8-Q400 VH-QOC operating as QLK2824/5 again from and back to Brisbane.
