National Jet Express (ex Cobham) Dash-8-Q400 Next Gen VH-IYP Adds Gladstone Airport to Rockhampton Airport Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) Charter Flights

On Thursday 22 February, a new tail was spotted making its first ever visit into Gladstone Airport in the form of National Jet Express (formerly Cobham) Dash-8-Q400 Next Gen VH-IYP.

It was operating as 'JTE392' / "Jetex 392" and arrived from Brisbane and departed to Rockhampton Airport on what seems to be a stop on the weekly closed Fly-in Fly-out (FIFO) charter flights between Brisbane and Rocky which started in October 2023.

VH-IYP then departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Gladstone Airport before continuing back to Brisbane all as 'JTE393' / "Jetex 393" 

This stop at Gladstone Airport is reportedly a permanent addition to the Rockhampton Airport flights.

Sincere thanks to the local plane spotters for allowing us to share these great photos of a great first-time visitor to Gladstone Airport!
