Default QANTASLINK W A

Another new A320 for QANTASLINK, VH-UVO, (ex 9V-JSF, VH-JQH, TC-OGP, F-WWKC) arrived in Perth yesterday, 28/10. And VH-JQX entered service on 26/10.

B717, VH-NXN, returned to the Eastern States from Perth late in September and I expect others to follow soon.

Interesting to see some new 717 routes opening up in the east, notably Brisbane - Hobart and Melbourne - Launceston with the latter being up-gauged from Q400 services, according the QF timetables.

The other 7 B717s will be returned to the Eastern states and will be replaced by 5 A320s for QANTASLINK - 1 from Jetstar and 4 from Jetstar Asia.

I have also been told that more QF B737s will be allocated to FIFO work. The numerous daily FIFO flights in W A hve made Perth the busiest airport in Australia for several months.
