QantasLink has completed its first cabin refurbishment on a Bombardier Q300, as part of a programme that will cover its fleet of 45 turboprops.

The upgrade sees the installation of new ergonomic seat cushioning, leather upholstery, the addition of tablet holders and new floor coverings through the aircraft.

Each refurbishment takes around 10 days, and the work is being done at QantasLink’s Tamworth MRO facility as the aircraft undergo scheduled maintenance. All 45 Q200, Q300 and Q400 aircraft will have their refits completed by the end of 2019.

“Our turboprop aircraft are a significant part of our network and we’re committed to investing in product and service for regional Australia,” says QantasLink chief executive John Gissing.

“We look forward to welcoming our regional travellers onboard our upgraded turboprop aircraft and offering them a better inflight experience.”

QantasLink’s turboprops are used on regional services along Australia’s east coast.
