Our aircraft

Dash 8

As part of our commitment to keeping regional Australia connected, we've invested in 14 additional Dash 8-Q400. Larger, and over 30% faster, the Q400 will gradually replace our Q200 and Q300 turboprops, with the first aircraft joining the QantasLink fleet in late 2024 and subsequent deliveries to follow. These additional aircraft allow us to improve your travel experience and help you save time when exploring destinations across Australia. 

Our Dash 8 configurations:

  • Dash 8 (200 series) - 36 Economy seats.
  • Dash 8 (300 series) - 50 Economy seats.
  • Dash 8 (Q400 series) - 74 or 78 Economy seats.

Note: bassinet seats aren't available on these aircraft.
