Qantas rebrands its regional subsidiaries


Qantas is rebranding its regional subsidiaries, including BAe 146 operators Airlink and Southern Australia. All four subsidiaries, who have hitherto operated under their own names, will henceforth operate under the QantasLink brand. All services will have four-digit Qantas flight numbers, Airlink’s in the QF1800-QF1999 range and Southern’s in the QF2600-QF2899 range. In other respects, however, the airlines will retain their independence. National Jet Systems operates five series 100s, five series 200s, and two series 300s on Qantas’ behalf under the Airlink name, while Southern’s fleet includes three series 200s. The intention of the rebranding is to provide a more seamless service to passengers in the 52 cities and towns throughout Australia served by QantasLink. Aircraft will be progressively re-painted over the coming weeks. Some aircraft have been flying with their titles painted out in recent weeks, in anticipation of the change.
