Qantas 717-200 Routes?

Tue Dec 18, 2001 6:48 am

where does Qantas fly there 717's to? I was also surprised to see the a/c that they fly between AKL and SYD. I would have thought that the a/c would be smaller b/c of the shorter range. why is this? big market? thanks for any replies.

I think they still fly the 717 to routes when Impulse Airlines was there. I think they fly their routes when they used to be in service until Qantas bought them.

Melbourne-Hobart
Melbourne-Launceston
Sydney-Hamilton Island
Sydney-Hobart
Sydney-Launceston
Sydney-Maroochydore
Sydney-Townsville
These routes are not ex-Impulse (pre-QF) routes, Implulse has surrendered Sydney-Melbourne and Sydney-Brisbane to the mainline.
