Longest Scheduled Flight Of Dash 8 And F 50

Wed Jun 14, 2006 10:50 pm

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):

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.

Ethiopian Airlines, during its last years of serving Sana'a, Yemen, operated flights from Addis Ababa with an F50. Total flight time: 2 hours and 30 minutes.
