Last year (Singapore backed) Skywest was talking up 5 Airbuses for transcontinental services, (strange that’s exactly what Tiger ended up with), but... this year they are promoting F100s on Kalgoorlie - East Coast routes!
WA-based Skywest Airlines will launch a new route between Kalgoorlie and
Melbourne in October after signing a lease for two Fokker 100 jets. Skywest has introduced the new service to take advantage of the current mining boom in the state. The new jets increase the carrier’s fleet to 12, with Skywest to take delivery of the aircraft in September.
