Air New Zealand Dash 8 Q300 “All Blacks livery”

Background

Air Nelson a subsidiary of Air New Zealand operates 23 Q300 aircraft on regional operations around New Zealand. Ordered in 2004 there were 15 options for Q400 aircraft but these were later dropped. This aircraft is key to Air New Zealand’s regional towns to Air New Zealand’s hubs.

The all blacks livery is beautiful on this aircraft and I would love this for regional flights all around New Zealand and would great for this to be added.

It would be very nice to have, especially for all of NZs small regional airports. But it’s a shame that they only have Q300’s

I’m not sure how tough it would be for devs to add this aircraft. But I’m guessing it may be as easy as the only main difference is it’s smaller the the the Q400.

It could be a mini rework from devs like when the devs added the 777-200LR?

Well that’s true. It’s just that it isn’t the number 1 want to add the Q300 right now, so it will be a while till we see it.

I would absolutely love the Q300 alone.

would be cool to have it on the Q400 in Infinite Flight

Air New Zealand doesn’t fly the Q400 in real life so it wouldn’t be added to Infinite Flight.

This is a beautiful pick. I love seeing this girls in the domestic terminal at NZCH such a shame they no longer fly them from NZCH-NZPM because I used to love flying on them.

I’ve just started getting into doing a lot of flights within New Zealand in IF. Such amazing scenery NZ has to offer, some of the best scenery in IF is there, in my opinion. 😃

Would just love to see this in IF. Most flights in NZ not out of NZAA in real life are with this plane or the ATR 72-600. Most regional flights out of NZAA are with the already-added ANZ A320.

Adding this livery would attract so many more pilots to fly in NZ in IF, and this aircraft in general would suit many regional flights around the world, just like the Q400 and the CRJ series all do. 😃

You got my vote in, and it’s staying! 😉
