Mild, although being in victoria right now I couldn’t tell ya.

Is Qantaslink the only commercial they fly from Devonport?


I’m pretty sure. We only get Dash 8’s and a few private aircraft. I know Launceston gets 737’s and maybe 717’s? I know Hobart gets 717’s. Anyway, enjoying the planes up there?

We get:

  • Dash Qantas
  • Qantas Cargo 737
  • Jetstar A320
  • Virgin 737
  • Virgin Embraer
  • regional airlines like sharp

As far as I’m aware we don’t get 717’s


Nice! It gets pretty boring up here with just a few Dash 8’s. They usually turn a South to East over my house though, so that’s cool when they are low! I was asking about the 717’s because apparently they cut out the routes to Launceston. Did you arrive Melbourne airport?

Qantaslink still operates it… I arrived at YMML as usual.

Thought so. I arrived at YMML too but I didn’t get to see much. It was for a wedding. Anyway, I’ll let you enjoy your holiday! Good luck! 😉 🇦🇺🇦🇺
