Are Boeing 757s allowed to operate passenger service domestically within australia?

Just wondering as no aus airline operates them,

Hi

There was no need for the 757 in Australia. Qantas has found the 767 and older 737-300/400 to be fine.

No airline flys them into Australia, and the only time I have ever seen one was when the RNZAF flew one for the Avalon airshow.

It's all about market forces. The Boeing 757 is allowed to fly everywhere, it just depends on if anyone is willing to pay millions for it to.

Quoting Dangould2000 (Reply 2):

I would assume they would be allowed to. I dont see why not. It's just that there is no market for them. I guess UA could fly LAX-HNL-MEL but that would not be smart.

There was a group that was looking at launching a cargo operation in Australia some years ago, using B757's.

Not sure what happened to that proposal, but I don't think it had anything to do with aircraft type..

As there has never been a B757 on the AU register, then I assume it does not have Oz "type certification".

If you wished to operate one on the Oz register you would have to apply for this certification. It could certainly be done, but it would not be a trivial exercise for an airliner and would require Boeings assistance in suppling documentation to CASA. If they would be willing to do that at this late date I do not know, as there are no new 757s you aren't spending money with them.
