QantasLink is NOT an airline, it is a brand and a part of QF that manages QF regional operations. This includes Eastern & Sunstate? which QF own, they are the operating airlines for the Dash-8s. The B717s are run, under contract, by National Jet Systems, which is not owned by QF. (Qantaslink used to include Impulse before Jetstar).

I think their biggest threat & weakness is that they serve very low populations over vast distances, thus they are very dependant on the general state of the rual economy, more so than most companies are.

Suggest you research regional Australia in general and then look at the timetables. I think you'll see that they are very bound to that, but that is very varied too.

Hope that helps a little bit

Actually, if you can get your hands on a recent copy of Australian Aviation magazine (September 2008), there was a really good 4 page article in there about QantasLink that would answere many of your question, discussing their structure, fleet, routes, etc. as well as a bit of their history and future outlook/developement. Check it out if you can get hold of it  

Quoting Gemuser (Reply 3):

And like Gemuser said, do some research, take a look at the routes they fly, and look at the destinations they serve, airline competition, frequency etc. The routes they fly are very varied, from extreme remote destinations, to busy city pairs like CBR-SYD. Some routes they are the only airline that serve the destination, but on others like LST-MEL (will use my home port for example) they compete with flights of JQ, DJ and TT.

Have fun, should be interesting
