Skytrans Airlines Starts Flying Dash-8-100 Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) Charter Flights Between Rockhampton Airport and Labona Station Airstrip at Carmichael Coal Mine Site

On Monday 25 October, a great surprise to see that Skytrans Airlines has started flying closed Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flights between Rockhampton Airport and the Labona Station Airstrip within Adani Australia's (Bravus Mining & Resources) Carmichael Coal Mine site.


It appears that Dash-8-100 VH-QQC flew down from Cairns to Rockhampton Airport as SKP505 before then flying to Labona and back to Rocky as SKP771/2.

UPDATE!  On Tuesday 26 October, VH-QQC operated two more flights between Rockhampton Airport and Labona as SKP773/4/5/6.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 27 October, VH-QQC departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Brisbane as SKP776.

Meanwhile, also on Monday 25 October, fellow Skytrans Dash-8-100 VH-QQB looked to operated a FIFO charter flight into Labona but from Townsville.  It flew down from Cairns to Townsville as SKP501 before then flying to Labona and back to Townsville as SKP761/2.

Finally, also on Monday 25 October, Skytrans Airlines Dash-8-100 VH-QQG operated their Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) flight from Cairns to Rockhampton Airport via Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast) Airport and back as SKP81/82.


Nice!
