Hi,
I was just wondering what airlines and their subsidiaries do not operate any turbo prop a/c in their fleets.

From top of my head I can think of Emirates, Air France, MEA, El Al, Gulf Air, Qatar Airways.....

Thanks for sharing

Air France

Regional Airlines that operates for Air France uses Embraers 120 and SAAB 2000. Thus you can see them with Air France liveries. Not sure if it counts though

What about the low costs? Ryanair, Easyjet, Air Berlin, Germanwings... I don't think those operate turboprops. Or do they?

If you do it that way... then UA, US, CO, etc. don't operate their own props either, because they farm all that work out to regional carriers like Skywest, Commutair, Colgan, etc.

A few of the carriers in Asia don't even have any narrowbody aircraft in their fleet. Shoot, where else can an Airbus A-321 be called a "regional" jet?

Icelandair has all jets.

In terms of larger carriers, no one has yet mentioned LA. No carrier in the LAN group has props.

Actually, not anymore. Hong Kong is part of China, so their flights to China are domestic
