Qantas Group announced that two additional Fokker 100 jets have been acquired for use by Network Aviation, brining their fleet of the type to 14.

Network will also use its F100 aircraft on some services from Perth to Port Hedland, Karratha, Newman and Broome from later this year. Qantas states that this enables the frequency of services to remain the same, whilst capacity with changing market demand.

This downsizing of aircraft types is perhaps a reflection of the downturn in the resources industry, plus some resources projects are transitioning from the construction phase (which involves thousands of extra workers) to the production phase.
