Looks like VH-FWH/I have been sold to VAR and will be operating in WA.

Virgin to sell entire Fokker 50 fleet

Virgin Australia’s regional arm is disposing of its eight Fokker 50s and adding four Fokker 100s and an Airbus A320 as part of fleet and operational changes in Western Australia.

The 46-seat Fokker 50s have been used to serve West Australian government regulated routes to Albany, Esperance and Ravensthorpe in the state’s south west, as well as regular public transport (RPT) flights to Geraldton and charter and fly-in/fly-out services to other centres in the state.
However, with Virgin Australia Regional Airlines (VARA) confirming in September it would not bid to continue Albany, Esperance and Ravensthorpe in the current tender, as well as the changing nature of the mining sector given the transition from mining construction to production, the Fokker 50s have become surplus to requirements.

“Following an extensive review, the decision has been made to decommission and dispose of the airline’s eight Fokker 50 aircraft in the first half of 2016 due to a negative commercial outlook for its F50 operations,” Virgin said in a statement.

“The Virgin Australia Group continually reviews our operations, including our fleet, to ensure optimal utilisation and to meet customer demand.”

It was anticipated that the Perth-Geraldton route would be upgraded to the Fokker 100. Moreover, the cabin interiors of all 14 of the 100-seat aircraft were currently being upgraded.

Two of the four additional Fokker 100s Virgin was intending to acquire have already arrived in the fleet, after the airline purchased two Fokker 100s from Alliance Aviation in May.

The one additional A320 would increase Virgin’s number of the type to three.

Qantas has announced that it will acquire another 3 x F100's for WA domestic operations.

They are expected to come from Alliance/Austrian stocks.

Final inspection of the first of the next batch of 3 F100's for Network should happen in Bratislava in a few weeks time.

All going well, it should be in Aus in 4-6 weeks time.

Looks like VH-NHA has arrived in Perth and was delivered to Qantas/Network.

Interestingly Alliance also announced they are bringing 2 of the Austrian Fleet to Australia to increase their fleet size. Anyone know why they are adding capacity? I thought their mining routes would have slowed down.
