In another announcement Qantas has confirmed it will be introducing three brand new B737-800s from February 2011. Two of these aircraft will be based in Wellington, flying on the Sydney and Melbourne routes.Some further information posted on the Internet and also gleaned from timetables suggests the Jetconnect fleet will grow in size with the new look fleet standing at 6x 737-800s with 3x 737-400s remaining, mainly operating on the AKL-BNE route, although the 734 still appears on routes from MEL/SYD to WLG well into the new year.
Jetconnect will also take over the operation of the QF45/46 SYD-CHC-SYD route from QF mainline, leaving QF114/141 operated with the A333 as the only trans-tasman route still operated by QF mainline metal
*** Additional infomation shows ZK-JTS will return to QF mainline in March 2011 with the remaining 3 B734s to be phased out and sent to the desert by September (Subject to change) ***
