Bombardier Aerospace announced that Qantas Airways
of Australia has placed a firm order for three new 50-seat Q300*
Series turboprop airliners and has also purchased a 36-seat Dash
8® Q200 aircraft previously leased from Bombardier. Deliveries
of the new Bombardier Q300 aircraft are scheduled for the second
quarter of 2003.
Qantas will place the aircraft with its QantasLink regional
network, which includes the Dash 8 operations of Eastern Australia
Airlines and Sunstate Airlines.
With this order, the QantasLink Bombardier Aerospace fleet will
consist of 32 aircraft, of which 12 are Q Series.
“We are delighted that Qantas has once again returned to
Bombardier to fill its regional aircraft requirements,” said
John Giraudy, president, Bombardier Regional Aircraft.
“Qantas’ existing Dash 8 and Q Series fleet has proven
to be reliable and passenger friendly. As importantly, the
economics of the Q Series especially over short sectors makes this
aircraft extremely competitive.”
