Does anybody know the longest scheduled flights of the DASH 8 (all versions) and Fokker 50? Usually they only serve very short-haul routes, but I know that f.e. SAS uses her Dash 8 - 400 for flights from Stockholm even to Milano and Geneva...though that are still shorter routes.

The CIA's Dash 8: Afghanistan-USA.

Quoting AirbusOnly (Thread starter):
Usually they only serve very short-haul routes

I don't know if you want to know this, but when the F-50's predecessor, the F-27, was still young, it was used by Schreiner Airways specifically for holiday flights from Holland to Spanish destinations. Potentially the F-50 has good range with its 12:1 aspect ratio wing.

Malaysia Airlines' longest F50 route is between Sibu (Sarawak) & Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) - 1h 35m (600km). Most other routes are 30 to 45mins short hops within Borneo.
