Need Education From All Of You Please

Postby Aharon » Fri Jan 10, 2020 3:14 am

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

I need education from all of you on history of commercial aviation of New Zealand please.

Did Dash 8 -100, -200, and -300 serve in any New Zealand based airline please?

Thanks,

Aharon

Hey A.

Air Nelson (subsidiary of Air NZ) have operated the 300 series since about 2005....

Ansett NZ operated the 100 and 300 series until 2000...

Jetstar also operated the 300s up until November last year??? ...

And local independent operator Air National ran a 200 series (ex Ansett I think) for some time...

there may be others but I think those were the only regularly operated models
