They are often used for short regional flights, commonly in Europe, but what is the longest flight currently operating using a 146 or Avro RJ? I know some of the BE flights may be long on them, but there are a few operating regular routes in South East Asia such as the Philippines.
This is not including exec versions/Royal flight etc. Anybody have a good idea?
In the Philippines Asian Spirit (now Zest Air) operated the BAe 146-100 and -200 on flights to Palau and some internal flights to Caticlan, but the flights were shortlived and operating them to domestically wasn't working for them, so the aircraft were retired in 2008:
MNL-DVO-ROR = 957nm
MNL-CEB-ROR = 1049nm
Other long flights I can think of:
MLA-DUS = 984nm with Air Malta
MLA-FRA = 889nm with Air Malta
MLA-STR = 804nm with Air Malta
PBH-DEL = 1038nm with Druk Air
PBH-BKK = 657nm with Druk Air
SOF-TXL = 719nm with Hemus Air/Bulgaria Air
SOF-FRA = 756nm with Hemus Air/Bulgaria Air
SOF-BRU = 918nm with Hemus Air/Bulgaria Air
SOF-AMS = 948nm with Hemus Air/Bulgaria Air
SOF-TEL = 842nm with Hemus Air/Bulgaria Air
