QANTAS Link’s fleet of 45 turboprop aircraft will undergo a major cabin upgrade to improve the overall experience for customers travelling on the airline’s regional network.
The interiors of the airline’s Bombardier Q200, Q300 and Q400 aircraft will be refreshed with new ergonomic seat cushioning, leather upholstery, a refreshed colour palette and new floor coverings at QANTAS Link’s maintenance facilities, including at Tamworth Airport, the airline’s hub for regional aircraft maintenance.
The upgrade program will commence by June 2018 and is expected to be completed within 18 months, with each aircraft taking approximately three days to refresh. The work will be timed to coincide with scheduled maintenance and will closely align the turboprop interiors with the QANTAS Link jet fleet.
QANTAS Group CEO Alan Joyce said the multi-million dollar investment would give regional travellers a better travel experience.
